Our full COVID Plan can be read here: COVID PLAN Arcos V.3 Jan 5 2021
Firstly, from all of us on committee we hope you’re all keeping safe and practicing social distancing. These are strange and troubling times and Arcadians plans to be with you all the way.
The arts have always brought light in dark times, so we’re making preparations to give you light at the other side of COVID19.
So, how are we moving forward? We are flipping 2020 by trying to move our much anticipated theatre refurbishment forward to April/May and move our season to the end of the year! Ladies in Black will now be on in November and we have moved Sweeney Todd to March 2021.
For the many branches of our Arcadians family tree, this will mean a hiatus of at least 6 months. ACT, Lamplighters, Minstrels, Costumes, Props and Monday Maintenance volunteers will not have access to the theatre during this time. We are thinking outside the square and looking at digital solutions to keep them connected. We are committed to putting the safety of our members first, and while I know that the great camaraderie our volunteers share will be missing, it won’t be over.
We will provide regular updates throughout this period and some sneaky progress shots of the theatre revamp to keep you connected to us.
We have taken the decision, which is supported and recommended by the ACNC (our governing body) to postpone the AGM until later this year, when it is safe again for us to gather and celebrate with our theatre community. Our current committee has all agreed with this and as a result of that, it would seem my long service leave as President has also been postponed.
We are united in ensuring that Arcadians gets through this awful period together, with humour, respect and kindness. If you are struggling during this period of social isolation please reach out, we may not be able to hug you, but we can listen and connect. Please take care everyone, now is the time to bunker down and get creative so we can shine on the other side.
PS – this is the plan for now but this situation is not normal and change can happen quickly – keep watching this space.
Due to the COVID-19 situation the 2020 AGM has been postponed.
Watch this space for a new date.
All the information for the upcoming Ladies In Black Auditions is now available on our show page.
We are excited to finally reveal what is happening at Arcadians for the remainder of 2020.
Finalising our mainstage season will be Stephen Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD directed by Malcolm White in August 2020.
This will be followed by the Arcadians Children’s Theatre production of XANADU Jr in September 2020.
From October 2020, The Miner’s Lamp Theatre will be closed for the remainder of the year as we undergo some major refurbishments to the stage area. This will include a new lighting grid, curtains, backstage legs, stage, a new movable proscenium and more! No expense has been spared to give the Miner’s Lamp a BRAND NEW stage area to benefit our productions, performers, crews, members and patrons for many more years to come.
Venue: The Salvation Army Citadel, 11-13 Burelli Street, Wollongong.
When: 2pm Saturday 30th November 2019.
