April 10th 2020
2020 is Lollipop Productions tenth anniversary and during that 10 years we have entertained nearly a million schoolchildren and have never had cause to cancel a show. It is therefore with a very heavy heart that due to the developing situation with the Corona Virus, adherence to government directives and the surrounding uncertainty, we have to inform you that it has become necessary for us to make the very sad decision to postpone all of this year’s new shows.
Like most brand new shows, we start casting, designing, making and building sets and costumes, booking flights and accommodation, and arranging internal transportation many months even years in advance and It would be wholly irresponsible for us to allow that commitment to continue without the firm knowledge that the show will actually be allowed to go on.
The Shows that are postponed are as follows :-
A Tale of Peter Rabbit scheduled to tour UAE schools from 31st May to 2nd July
Macbeth scheduled to tour September & October 2020
The Snow Queen scheduled to tour October to December 2020
SO THAT’S THE BAD NEWS, HOWEVER, THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IF WE ARE PERMITTED TO RESUME OPERATIONS WE WILL TOUR TWO OF OUR MOST POPULAR EXISTING SHOWS FROM OCTOBER THROUGH TO DECEMBER 2020…THESE SHOWS ARE :
THE GINGERBREAD MAN & JACK AND THE GIANT
THESE TWO SHOWS WILL BOTH TOUR UAE SCHOOLS OCT-DEC 2020
BOOKING IS NOW OPEN FOR BOTH OF THESE SHOWS WITH NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED
We thank you for your continued support and very much look forward to seeing you all again later in the year, but until then please all Stay Safe! Stay home! Stay Well.
