News from Upstairs at The Gatehouse
As you know, due to the UK lockdown, all theatres are still currently closed.
However, following the Prime Minister’s recent roadmap announcement Upstairs at the Gatehouse will hopefully re-open on Tuesday 1st June 2021
The Christmas show is now our Summer show and we are very pleased that ‘FOREVER PLAID’ will be our first post lockdown production. Tickets will go on sale from 7th April
This wonderfully entertaining musical will play between 1st and 27th June with performances every night at 7.30pm (except Sundays and Mondays) There will be matinees on Sundays at 4pm and one Saturday matinee at 3pm on 26th June. The show runs for 80mins with no interval
We have taken many precautions to keep our audience safe from the nasty virus. At our one and only performance (since 16th March 2020) – the open dress rehearsal of ‘Forever Plaid’ on 15th December – the audience were temperature checked on arrival and everyone wore masks throughout the performance. We had a ‘full house’ of 40 people who all sat socially distanced and we received many favourable comments, not only about the show, but also about how safe people thought they were in our auditorium whilst watching live entertainment.
These protocols will stay in place for the June run of ‘Forever Plaid’. The opening date is subject to Government confirmation that the roadmap dates announced on 22nd February will not change.
‘A Modest Little Man’, ‘The Yalta Game’ & ‘After-play’ will be rescheduled and the new dates posted on our website as soon as possible.
‘Margaret: Rebel Royal’ and ‘Monday Night Magic’ will also be rescheduled and the new dates posted on our website as soon as possible.
The remainder of our 2021 programme will be announced during April.
We look forward to welcoming you back to The Gatehouse very soon.
