               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Drama Play Script: 'The Phantom Of The Arts Centre' by Geoff Buckingham

Synopsis

A small team of volunteers take over a disused building so that it can be used for community arts etc. The building, which was a factory during World War II, has a colourful history and a cellar. The building, and the cellar, have not been used for many years. 

There is a strange noise from the cellar... Sally mischievously goes down into the cellar and discovers that it contains a World War II veteran, who is still on duty! There then follows some moving dialogue between them, until they are interrupted by the adults. The veteran disappears, but then returns to find that he and Dolly may have met before... 

This play reveals the friction between members of a volunteer group and also the impact and heartbreak of war-time romance.
