Simcoe Little Theatre moves April show to JuneSimcoe Little Theatre has delayed the opening of its next production by two months in reaction to the COVID-19 virus.Originally slated to hit the stage April 16, Save The Theatre will now run for two weeks starting June 11. The show scheduled for the June timeslot, Dry Streak, has been cancelled.Theatre officials will continue to monitor “social distancing” guidelines and rules in the coming weeks and could make further scheduling changes, said SLT president Richard Gilbert.“The lineup for the 2020/21 season will not be announced until we know the status of the June production of Save the Theatre,” Gilbert explained. “Any tickets sold for the Save the Theatre production will be valid for June performances. If it is cancelled, we will allow transference to an alternative play in the fall season.“These decisions were not taken lightly, and will be re-addressed as the health of the community, the country, and indeed the world is ameliorated,” he added.Due to the impending loss of ticket revenue, the theatre has taken action to “maintain financial stability” but is still seeking donations from the public, Gilbert noted.Simcoe Little Theatre is Norfolk County’s community theatre and operates out of its space on Talbot Street North.
