At this time of year, we are normally getting very excited with finalising our script, getting prepared for casting, making music and song choices and working on prop builds amongst many other things. All of this hard work and planning is in order to deliver twelve performances of our annual Monday Night Group Pantomime at the end of January each year, so that we can raise and donate substantial amounts of money to groups in our local community.
It is therefore, with a very heavy heart, that today we have to announce the postponement of our 2021 Pantomime ‘Jack & The Beanstalk’, which will now be performed in January 2022 at our usual home; The Civic, Stourport-on-Severn.
This decision was extremely difficult for the Trustees of Monday Night Group. We have reviewed the current restrictions and government guidelines and explored the uncertainty surrounding how live performances may proceed in the months ahead. It was concluded that being a small local charity, we would not be able to successfully plan for, and implement, measures that would keep all cast, crew and our audiences safe during this ever fluid and unprecedented time.
Monday Night Group take pride each year in delivering a show to the highest standards using the best technology, scenery, costumes, script, cast and crew to entertain our audiences and to provide a value for money night out whilst raising funds to support local community groups who are often vulnerable. We rely on full audience numbers to create both the atmosphere and affordability of our production. At this time, we cannot risk the safety of our members or audience members to achieve our charitable aims.
We are so enormously grateful to the audiences that have attended our shows in previous years. We would like to reassure everybody that planning continues behind the scenes to ensure that we can come back to delight you with our show in January 2022. We will be back – better, stronger, funnier (maybe…) and with more Dame costumes than ever – OH YES WE WILL!
To our audiences, members, friends, cast, crew and supporters; stay safe – and we will see you soon – Dame Trott is counting on it 👠😉💋🌱.
