London Repertory Players Postpone until Summer 2021

The London Repertory Players have very reluctantly and sadly cancelled this year's summer season, in negotiation with the Shelley Theatre. The Shelley Theatre will not reopen in time for the season to begin.

Vernon Thompson, Producer and Director, told us, "Both Zoe at the Shelley and myself have really tried to make this happen but even if this were possible, social distancing measures would have to be enforced, as well as there being the risk of a company member showing symptoms and therefore closing down the season immediately. And of course there is the understandable reluctance of audiences to visit theatres. All in all it means the decision to cancel had to be taken."

"It's heartbreaking as I feel this was the best season overall with a fantastic company assembled. But time will go by and next summer we hope to stage this season, lock stock and barrel, just 12 months late!  Keep your eye on the website www.londonrepertoryplayers.co.uk as the programme is dependent on the same plays being available for us to perform. "

If you had tickets the theatre will contact you directly about refunds for this summer. You will be able to request the credit in your account to be put towards the next LRP season in Summer 2021.

London Repertory Players will return to the Shelley Theatre in Bournemouth for our fifth summer season with five plays in five weeks, starting on Thursday 29th July and running until Tuesday 31st August 2021.
