Covid19 upstages Auckland theatre again….
The Board of Tadpole Productions deeply regret the current situation that required all theatre productions to once again tread water. Our planned season of The Campervan by Kathryn Burnett had been due to open at the PumpHouse Theatre on September 9 this year.
With rehearsals already in full swing with a wonderful cast of five, as well as technical aspects, set design and construction under way, the decision to either cancel or postpone has been extremely difficult. As a small theatre company, with neither a registered office nor full time staff, we are not eligible for any of the subsidies or insurances on offer in a pandemic situation, so we are looking at a considerable loss on what pre-opening ticket sales indicated would have been our best-selling show since our formation in 2012.
Following discussions with the playwright and her agent we are delighted to announce that The Campervan will now be staged at The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna from 5th to 15th May 2022.
We will keep you up to date with any further news, but in the meantime, thank you for supporting our endeavours to bring quality theatre to the northern region of Auckland.
We are very appreciative of everyone who has assisted us in the past, to enable us to attain the reputation our productions now have, and we look forward to once again entertaining you in 2022 with the world premiere of The Campervan by Kathryn Burnett.
The PumpHouse Theatre will be in touch with all of our patrons who have current tickets to process a refund.
