Progress Theatre Statement to patrons and members of the public regarding Covid-19
Following the latest government advice about Coronavirus, the Progress Theatre building is closed to the public from today, Wednesday 18th March and all productions for the rest of the season have been cancelled.
It’s with enormous sadness that we temporarily close our doors, but the safety of our audiences, members and visitors is of utmost importance. We apologise for the disruption and thank you for your support during this period of great uncertainty.
We will be in contact very shortly with all ticket holders to arrange automatic refunds for the forthcoming performances of Brewster’s Millions, Babe and Silence of the Sea. If you bought your tickets online your refund will come directly from our ticketing provider Ticketsource.
Please do not contact our box office directly as this is only manned on a part time basis by a volunteer and they have been overwhelmed with calls about refunds. We are all volunteers and everyone is working very hard so please be patient with us. We will shortly be sharing a link you will be able to use to make a small to donation to Progress Theatre should you be able to do so – we appreciate times are hard, but we are an entirely self-funded charity, so any financial support you may be able to offer would mean a lot to us.
We may be temporarily closed but we won’t be forgotten.
We will continue to run some of our creative and theatre workshops online and will be in touch with our membership and the wider public once we have more information to share. We will also post updates to our website and social media channels.
Thank you for your understanding and patience in these challenging times.
