AMTC committee met today and decided that JAM, as originally planned for 2020, cannot go ahead. With great sadness we are cancelling plans to put on Alice in Wonderland in 2020. We feel more confident that we can stage the show next year. AMTC already has a booking for the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre for JULY 2021, the middle of the school holidays.
We propose to start JAM in Term 4 this year and continue work on Alice in Term 1 and 2. If a child was enrolled in JAM for 2020 and turns 16 before July 2021 (there are 5), we will make an exception for these kids to do “one more JAM”.
Julia and other members of the production team had already put in so much work this year. Our world has really changed. It is not just the children who will be disappointed at this announcement. We hope this period of uncertainty ends soon. Please make an effort to keep track of your libretto and look forward to getting to use it later this year!
