Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Sunderland Empire has been postponed until 2021.
A statement from the theatre says:
“We can confirm our 2020 Pantomime is moving to Christmas 2021/22. While this is sad news, we are delighted that the show and its stars will all return next year! We will be contacting all customers directly and appreciate your patience as we manage all orders and enquiries.”
This echoes the statement made a 1:00 today by the Ambassador Theatre Group:
“Due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19, it is with sadness that we have taken the decision to suspend all pantomime performances at our UK venues until Christmas 2021.
“Following discussions with our producing partners we agreed it was no longer possible for us to deliver the planned performances this year. We know you will have been looking forward to seeing the show and we apologise for the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause.
“We’re pleased to confirm all performances will be rescheduled to Christmas 2021.”
