Production Announcement – Wicked June 2020

Dear NPOS friends and family

Considering the difficult challenges posed by COVID-19, the Board of Management of New Plymouth Operatic Society take the health, safety and wellbeing of our Society members, Show cast members, Sponsors, Volunteers and staff very seriously, ensuring everyone’s safety is our greatest priority.

In the light of this evolving situation regarding COVID-19 around the world and in New Zealand, we have been closely monitoring the Ministry of Health guidelines.

It is with a very heavy heart that during these unprecedented times and after much consultation and deliberation, New Plymouth Operatic board of management have made the difficult decision to cancel our show season of ‘Wicked’ which was due to open on 18th June 2020.

We are currently working with the Ticketek and Showplace to organise ticket refunds.

While we are extremely sad to have to make this decision, the health and safety of everyone involved is paramount.

In these times we need to stay positive so we start to think about all the wonderful shows ahead of us. As they say, “the show must go on”, and it will.

Future decisions will be made in the best interest of the society and all people concerned.

In the meantime, keep yourself and your families safe.

Kindest regards,
Howard Rozon
New Plymouth Operatic Society
