Due to illness and related personal circumstances for some of the team, we have had to take what is an ultimately gut-wrenching but unavoidable decision to cancel Henry V at Brixham Theatre. This is the first time in 17 years since we formed, that we have ever had to cancel a performance.
We did look at rescheduling but we’re unable to find a suitable local venue for January that allows for professional theatre with fast costume changes, a workable backdrop and the tech, as well as audience numbers. After that logistically it becomes too much as we run close to Ben Hur (already contracted in a number of venues across three counties of the Southwest) .
We are all self-employed freelance actors and creatives working professionally on many different things with different companies and via our agents, so rescheduling then becomes increasingly difficult- getting us all in the same place at the same time especially in the summer when a lot more film and tv work comes in via our agents & contact would make herding cats look easy.
So, we will be focussing on making Ben Hur even bigger and better than it was going to be, and coming back to a stage near you with a bang in the spring. You’ll see many of the same cast in Ben Hur!
We do apologize sincerely for all disappointment for audience- John at Brixham Theatre will be in contact with you in due course if you have bought tickets. We will continue working like mad behind the scenes, and see you on stage soon.
