Wonderville has delayed its West End opening tonight (Friday 16 July) after a member of the Wonderville team tested positive for COVID-19.
The show was due to start its 65-show West End season at the Palace Theatre, with a VIP gala opening night set for Monday 19 July.
Performances will now start on Wednesday 21 July with a new gala/press night on Monday 26 July.
The producers said: “Our whole team have been adhering to extremely thorough and diligent measures, as all in theatreland work under the most unique circumstances. Unfortunately, a member of the ‘Wonderville’ team has sadly tested positive for Covid-19. To ensure that we are adhering to the strictest of protocols and maintaining the safety of all involved, our opening is paused. Our first performance will now be on Wednesday 21st July. We all are incredibly excited to welcome you to ‘Wonderville’ then and to share the joy, laughter, and wonder that we have been enjoying throughout our rehearsals.
“The ‘Wonderville’ team are so sorry that this means our first six performances cannot go ahead, but the safety of our Wonderville family and audience members remains our number one priority”.
