LIVE THEATRE PLAN HIT BY CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

NANTWICH Players have had to cancel their return to a live theatre production, complete with an audience, which was planned to start on December 10.

   It was to have been a radio play staged as a Studio Production in the theatre over nine evenings with matinees on the two Saturdays as well as the evening performances. The Players are now hoping to move the production to January - Friday 22, to Saturday 30.

   The plan is for a smaller audience in the theatre (due to Government regulations), plus an on-line audience. Tickets will be sold on-line only and will not be available from the Civic Hall in Market Street.

   In a message to Players' members, the Chairman, Jeremy Acklam said: "This has 

been caused by a change of heart by the Government. They have confirmed that amateur theatre productions cannot be rehearsed in their theatres, although professional theatres can do so."

   The new dates depend on the Players being able to resume rehearsals immediately after the lifting of the lockdown on December 3.

   The Players' Theatre has been prepared for Covid Safe procedures which will continue until Government advice changes.

o  In the production, a group of actors try to broadcast "A Christmas Carol" to America on Christmas Eve 1943. A famous star of stage and screen swallows his pride and brings his Scrooge to the airways. Halfway through he hears some bad news and has a breakdown but the show must go on. So Scrooge is replaced with a hard-boiled detective, a femme fatale and an absurd Tiny Tim.
