It looks like third time still unlucky.
We are sorry to advise that irrespective of Covid problems, the SEC has advised us that we cannot be guaranteed our booked dates for Annie in April 2021. This is because of compulsory renovation work that is likely to be occurring at that time.
We were advised of this a little while ago, but we have been exploring other possibilities including alternative dates, venues, etc. The AMTC committee has met and come to the decision that we regrettably cannot do the show justice with any of the alternatives. As such we are therefore advising our supporters that we will not be able to perform Annie in 2021.
We trust that you can understand that this is very difficult for the committee and the production team. We know that it is also very difficult for the cast, crew and orchestra.
We will explore the possibility of revisiting Annie sometime in the future, but this would be subject to the usual process of securing performing rights etc.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding throughout this time, and for the messages of support and encouragement. Thanks to the production team for all the work that you have already put into this. Hopefully one day it will be able to come to fruition for the public.
