Arrive for the Friday matinee of Aladdin told be told Princess Jasmine is unwell (had been since yesterday) so the doors will be opening late and the lady stepping in to her shoes will be using a script. Not great but OK. Then 15 minutes before curtain up they cancel the whole performance. Carnage ensues. Surely in any production there are suitable understudies for leading roles or even a whole cast approach to the show must go on????? Try explaining this to an autistic child you have spent months preparing for a theatre trip....NOT GOOD ENOUGH. You have now lost my trust and consequently my business...POOR POOR POOR....

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience caused. When it became apparent that Ms Rose was too ill to perform, we did everything we could to ensure the show would go ahead. An understudy, Ms Rosamond, was brought in straight away and we had hoped that we wouldn't need to cancel the show. Unfortunately there simply wasn't enough time to perform all the technical and safety checks that we needed to. This meant that unfortunately we had no alternative but to cancel the Matinee performance. There is availability next week so we can re-book you onto another performance or we can process a full refund. If you haven't done so already this can be arranged by contacting our box office on 01924 211311. Again, we are very sorry that this happened.
