News from Upstairs at The Gatehouse

As we are sure you know, due to the UK lockdown, all theatres are now closed.

Those who have bought tickets for Ovation’s musical “Forever Plaid” have two options.

  1. Apply by email events@ovationproductions.com for a refund, including your full name and (if possible) your booking number. Please note that this will be for the full value of the tickets, we are afraid we cannot refund the booking fee as we have already paid this to the third party ticketing company.
  2. If you do not want a refund, you could donate the ticket money. We would like to pay the actors, musicians and crew who are all freelancers, probably the worst hit community throughout the Covid crisis. Please let us know if you would like to take this option.

Those who have bought tickets for “A Modest Little Man” – this show will be rescheduled for later in the year and we will let you know the new dates as soon as possible.

Those who have bought tickets for “Margaret: Rebel Royal” and “Monday Night Magic” – these shows will also be rescheduled, and again we will let you know the new dates as soon as possible.

We have taken many precautions to keep our audience safe from the nasty virus.  At our one and only performance  (since 16th March) – 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.

Let’s hope that 2021 will bring on back the good times.
