During the past few weeks, the YAT Trustees have been monitoring the advice and guidance provided by the UK Government and Public Health England, to ensure that we are adhering to the directives around Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Earlier this week we made a decision to suspend The Snow Queen's rehearsals pending a review by Hampton Hill Theatre operators Teddington Theatre Club in line with the above guidance. They have today informed us that the theatre is to close it's doors with immediate effect to performance groups and as a result we will no longer be able to stage the production at their venue in mid-April 2020.
We know that the current members will be disappointed, having worked extremely hard over the past few months to bring this production to the stage. As it stands today The Snow Queen is cancelled. No decision has yet been made as to whether we will be able to bring the show to the stage at a later date, however we remain strongly committed to ensuring that the safety of our members and the health and wellbeing of all our volunteers and audience members is our topmost priority at all times.
Further to this, we can confirm that all future YAT activities for the remainder of 2020 are presently suspended until further notice. We will of course continue to monitor the situation and make further decisions and announcements based on the information and directives provided to us later in the year.
