We have made the very difficult decision to postpone our production of Dick Whittington due to the increasing cases of Covid in Ryedale.
The pantomime will now run from Friday 13th May to Sunday 22nd May 2022.
All Tickets Remain Valid for the corresponding performance. Refunds will not be issued but we will endeavour to alter your tickets to another date if you are unable to attend the corresponding performance.
- Friday 21st Jan corresponds with Friday 13th May
- Saturday 22nd Jan corresponds with Saturday 14th May
- Sunday 23rd Jan corresponds with Sunday 15th May
- Tuesday 25th Jan corresponds with Tuesday 17th May
- Wednesday 26th Jan corresponds with Wednesday 18th May
- Thursday 27th Jan corresponds with Thursday 19th May
- Friday 28th Jan corresponds with Friday 20th May
- Saturday 29th Jan corresponds with Saturday 21st May
- Sunday 30th Jan corresponds with Sunday 22nd May
As you will all be aware we are a small group of players and we do not have the available performers to cover or understudy the principal cast, this risk combined with an increase in cases has left us with little choice.
We also aim to provide a safe experience for both our volunteer staff and audience members and again with the surge in cases we feel it is best to postpone.
Covid has caused us so many problems and we were very much looking forward to opening our doors with our pantomime this year. We have invested the little money we had remaining into the production in the hopes it would be a success and be the grand reopening of our theatre.
With the postponement this will not be the case and the theatre faces another period of grave uncertainty and will remain closed for another four months. Another four months of next to no income will take its toll and therefore we have reopened our online Covid Donation platform. If you are able to contribute anything towards our ongoing running costs you can do so online via our website www.kirktheatre.co.uk.
It is somewhat stating the obvious that the whole cast and crew are completely devastated at this news we were so very much looking forward to our opening night and filling the theatre with laughter and applause.
I would personally like to thank everyone for their understanding and unwavering support and I look forward to welcoming you all back to see a belated production of Dick Whittington in May.
Director of Dick Whittington & Theatre Manager
