Chester Theatre~ latest information




To all our wonderful supporters

It is with deepest regret and sadness that, following the latest government announcement, we have taken the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the ‘Cats’ production with immediate effect.

We were hopeful that we would be able to push on and see out the week, but we always intended to follow government guidelines on this matter and must always put the health and safety of our cast, crew and audiences at the forefront of our consideration.

Everyone at OTMYT is hugely upset but the decision we have made, we feel, is the right one for all concerned.

Please look out for further announcements from us, we will contact you as soon as we have any further updates but tonight’s dress rehearsal and all performances have been cancelled.

With best wishes

All at OTMYT.

Forum Studio Theatre and Tip Top Productions Announcement

In response to the recent government guidelines, the Board of Tip Top Productions have decided to cancel all current productions until further notice with a view to rescheduling at a future date.  This means that no shows or events will go ahead at The Forum Studio Theatre  (Tip Top or visiting companies) for the time being.  Our production of Joseph, due to be performed at Theatr Clwyd in May, has also been cancelled and will be rescheduled.  All rehearsals will also be put on hold for now.

 Ticket holders and prospective bookers will be contacted directly.  Please be patient with us while we deal with this.

 We believe the measures taken to be in the best interest of our members, volunteers and audiences and we will be constantly monitoring the situation in order to take what we feel is the safest option for all of our wonderful supporters.

 As a company with community right at its heart and where coming together is the essence of our DNA, the weeks and months ahead are clearly going to be very challenging for our members and volunteers.  The board are looking at how we can offer support during these challenging times.

 Regular updates and contact information will be posted via our social network platforms.
