YOUNG HATS PRODUCTION OF MADAGASCAR
As I am sure you know by now we had to cancel this production at dress rehearsal. At this point all of the money had already been spent in getting the show to this point i.e. costumes, hire hall, sound and lighting, set, performing licence etc etc. We are very grateful to some of these contributors who have shown some leniency with regard to their invoices and it is possible that further progress could be made on some of these issues.
However, we fully understand that in the present circumstances some of you will want/need a refund of your ticket money, but I would be grateful if you could read the following regarding amateur theatre societies.
“This is a plea for all those who have bought a ticket for an amateur theatre show which has been cancelled: please consider not asking for a refund or donating your ticket money back to the society. There are so many theatre groups whose shows have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and many will not survive if they are forced to refund the tickets to their show. Incredible volunteers give their time, efforts and passion to continue this tradition, giving people the chance to be involved in and experience the magic of theatre and the societies often struggle to stay financially sound at the best of times. If you love theatre; if you want your children or grandchildren to be able to have the experiences you have without paying £80+ for a professional show; if you have ever laughed, cried, sniggered or sobbed through an amateur show, then just say no to a refund. I understand £15-20 may give you a few more coffees or a few pints at the weekend, but it could also safeguard the future of some of your communities longest running and most important groups.”
We really do understand if you would like a refund of your Madagascar ticket and this is how to do it:
1. Send a photo or scan of your actual tickets to [email protected]
2. Include your name as it appears on your bank account
3. Include your 6 digit sort code and 8 digit account number.
We will then arrange a BACS transfer direct to your account.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS WE WANT TO CLEAR THIS UP, BUT ALL REQUESTS MUST BE IN BEFORE 5.00 PM ON 31ST MARCH 2020.
What our audience are saying
Went to Herstmonceux last night to see "Hairspray" . I can only say it was absolutely superb and as good as, if not better, than any London show. Congratulations to Chris and Linda and every member of the very large cast.
A very happy visitor
