THE PLAYHOUSE THEATRE CLOSED UNTIL END APRIL 2020, DUE TO COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)
The Playhouse Theatre has made the decision to cancel all performances, with immediate effect, until the end of April 2020. This is in line with President Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement of declaring South Africa a State of Disaster and the City of Cape Town’s executive decision to implement precautionary, proactive measures to minimise the risk of spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The most important public health principle is the containment of the disease as far as possible, including avoiding social gatherings and minimising groups of people gathering in one space.
The Playhouse will continue to follow directives from Local and National Government as well as the City of Cape Town leadership. Members of the public will be kept informed through its social media platforms, SMS, newsletter and in the press.
There has been a call on social media platforms that patrons who have booked tickets for a show at any theatre or event in the country to please donate the tickets rather as this is precisely what can kill the arts. The livelihood of many performing arts professionals including our Not-For-Profit run Theatre is at stake as the world tries to respond to and manage the Coronavirus pandemic. The Playhouse would like to encourage that this option be kindly considered.
Thank you for your support and together we will make it through this too.
