Family musical based on the Dreamworks Animation Film
SHREK The musical
at Epsom Playhouse
8th to 12th MARCH 2022
Sadly due to the virus the 2020 performance has been rescheduled
Notice: Postponement of Epsom Players Shrek The Musical to March 2022.
The Epsom Players Committee have taken a lot of time to consider the best course of action in relation to our already postponed production of Shrek The Musical. Unfortunately, we have decided to further postpone it until March 2022.
The dates of the performances will be 8th – 12th March 2022.
We have arrived at this decision because there is still so much uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and what this holds for Theatres resuming.
We have not taken this decision lightly and we have based our decision on a number of factors, including:
1. We are not allowed to hold rehearsals with more than thirty people. We have a large cast and there is no guarantee that these restrictions would be lifted in time for November.
2. The consequences if there was a further lockdown either nationally or locally or if someone in the cast or crew contracted Covid-19. It would mean the show would have to be cancelled with no notice or any ability to re-schedule.
3. The Epsom Playhouse has not confirmed when they will re-open. Even when they do re-open the capacity for the audience could be reduced to under 100. This just would not be financially viable.
4. As a society and because of where we were in our production in March 2020 when we had to postpone, we already face a loss of nearly £20,000. We cannot take the risk that a production would be cancelled with no notice.
