Chesil Theatre production delayed but the show will go on

A FAMILY bereavement forced Chesil Theatre to postpone their broadcast production Two by Jim Cartwright from last Saturday to Sunday December 27.

This follows an earlier rescheduling in line with government guidance but Winchester’s leading amateur theatre company is determined the show will go on, eventually.

Chairman David Small said: “We’re aware this is a great disappointment for everyone who has been looking forward to our first streaming project ChesilTheatre@Home.

“The cast and crew have worked hard through many difficulties and we’re sure their patience will be rewarded at this later date. We realise this might not be convenient for everyone who has already booked and enquiries for refunds can be made to ”

Chesil Theatre, also known as Winchester Dramatic Society, presents six main productions a year, ranging from comedy to classics.

It also runs drama workshops and readings, plus two lively youth theatre groups as well as offering stagecraft and technical training. The company has been performing for over 150 years.
