Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres have announced that their Rock ’n’ Roll Pantomime Robin Hood, is postponed until Christmas 2021.
Tickets booked for the pantomime will be moved to the subsequent performances in 2021.
The impact of Covid-19 means the theatres cannot present the popular pantomime in an economically viable way.
The Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres are announcing the postponement with a heavy heart and know how much the pantomimes mean to audiences of all generations, who visit the theatres every year.
“This is not a decision we wanted to make and it is one that we have not taken lightly, knowing what it means to us and to you”, said Mark Da Vanzo and Gemma Bodinetz, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the Liverpool and Merseyside Theatres Trust.
“The Everyman Rock ’n’ Roll Pantomime is a Christmas Institution in Liverpool and we like to think it’s the best in the land, nay Universe.
Due to Covid-19 and our ongoing extended closure, this year is financially tough and whilst we believe we can survive, we can’t afford to take any risks that might jeopardise our theatres for the future.
Like many theatres across the country, with social distancing in place, it makes it impossible to present the show you know and love in an economically viable way.
Whilst we know that this news will be a huge disappointment, we want to reassure you that the Rock ’n’ Roll Panto will return!”
Mark Da Vanzo and Gemma Bodinetz added that the Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres are working on a modest, but magical Christmas experience at the theatres for friends and families to enjoy. More details will be announced soon.
Customers who have already booked Pantomime tickets for this year will be contacted via email regarding their booking.
