June 2020 Newsletter – Still shut, still missing you all…
Another month, another newsletter that’s not crammed with stuff that will have you beating a path to our door. Sadly, but correctly, those doors are closed for foreseeable future. We are keeping a close eye on Government advice and will keep you all updated on our website and via our social media channels.
You can get hold us with any queries via email on firstname.lastname@example.org; we don’t have email addresses for all our customers, so if you know someone who is wondering what’s going on, please encourage them to email us, or forward them this email.
We don’t know how long social distancing will continue, and if ongoing, this will affect how we operate in the future. We might not know when we will open again, but we are already working on the ‘how’ and are looking at how we will operate on stage, backstage and front of house. The health and safety of our customers, volunteers and staff is of paramount importance, so we will be hard at work behind the scenes ensuring the theatre is a safe place for to visit once we are permitted to open.

Panto on sale!
P is for post-lockdown and P is for panto! What better way to get something fun in the diary, than by booking for our fabulous family pantomime, The Sleeping Beauty!
Yes – Sleeping Beauty! We’ve taken the decision to change our pantomime this year to ensure we can have the necessary social distancing backstage. The health and wellbeing of everyone at The Elgiva is our primary concern, so whatever the new normal is, we will be prepared!
Sleeping Beauty is set to be a proper, quality family pantomime, filled with spectacular special effects, fabulous songs, wonderful costumes, great gags and oodles of slapstick. And of course plenty of audience participation and sing-a-longs.
