April 6, 2020 / TILLSONBURG, ON –

Theatre Tillsonburg is postponing the opening of the musical MAMMA MIA!, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.  It was originally scheduled to run Thurs., April 30 to Sun., May 10, 2020. We had been hoping to reschedule the run into the end of June, but that now looks unlikely, since the provincial ban imposed on gatherings of five or more people makes it impossible to continue rehearsals and perform in front of a full house.  We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis, but performances may well be delayed until the fall.

It is important to emphasize the show is postponed, not cancelled. Current ticketholders still retain the right to use their existing seats that they have purchased to see the show.  Please watch for further announcements concerning show dates.

“We have a very talented group of actors who have been working extremely hard over many months learning music, dialogue and choreography, who are completely committed to seeing MAMMA MIA! brought to life on our stage,” said Tom Heeney, Director.  “Our backstage crew has similarly been working tirelessly building and painting sets and backdrops and sewing costumes, and are equally determined that all of their work will not go to waste. The show must and will go on.”

We thank our patrons for their support and patience as we navigate through this unprecedented time.  Live theatre will be back as soon as we can all gather together again safely.  Until then be safe, be well, and take care of each other.

Inquiries can be directed by email to boxoffice@theatretillsonburg.com, or messages can be left on voicemail at 519-688-3026.

On behalf of everyone at Theatre Tillsonburg we would like to thank our very generous sponsors of the coming season.
