Central Coast Council has advised that all shows due to take place at Laycock St Theatre have been postponed until at least April 30, as Council moves to curb all non-essential Council services, events and activities to slow the spread of Coronavirus on the Coast.
The decision comes following the Federal Government’s latest regulations on public gatherings which has seen the threshold for events drop from 500 people to 100.
The news also sees the cancellation of the Gosford Musical Society’s (GMS) final performances of the ABBA inspired Mamma Mia musical due to take place on March 20 and 21.
The Laycock’s Box Office team has advised that all ticketholders for these two shows are eligible for a full refund and that staff would be contacting them as soon as possible.
The community is asked to be patient and understanding as the Box Office team undertake this endeavor.
More information about refunds for shows up until April 30 will be made available as decisions are made.
Council has advised that April 30 is merely a best case scenario and that shows after this date may not proceed.
GMS President, Roslyn English, has also announced that the GMS was suspending all activities until further notice to safeguard members from COVID-19.
This decision will impact all aspects of upcoming GMS productions, with more announcements to come as the situation unfolds.
