A message from Artistic Director Kip Williams and Executive Director Patrick McIntyre
The ongoing situation regarding the containment of COVID-19 has unfortunately led to the cancellation of many productions around the country, including several here at Sydney Theatre Company.
We are saddened to have to disappoint our audiences in this way, however our first priority is and always will be the health and wellbeing of our patrons, our employees, and the community at large.
In this challenging time, all of us at STC are concerned for the wellbeing and long term viability of Australia’s vibrant and internationally recognised arts community. We are especially mindful of the plight of small organisations and freelance practitioners who do not have access to resources or contingency plans.
We greatly appreciate your understanding during this difficult period, and thank you for the support so many of you have already shown us and fellow theatre makers. We’ve been fielding requests as to how best you can help and we are very grateful to our patrons who have chosen to donate their cancelled tickets back to us, as tax-deductible contributions – generosity like this, and further donations, will be essential to mitigate the impact of this unprecedented global event.
These are uncertain times. One thing we can be sure of, however, is that theatre is a necessary and vital space where communities are built, nurtured and maintained. Its importance will only continue to grow as we look to the future. Rest assured that we will be back and producing shows as soon as it is safe and advisable to do so.
Kip Williams, Artistic Director
Patrick McIntyre, Executive Director
