After careful consideration of the current COVID-19 situation and the ongoing restrictions, we have made the difficult decision that we will not be able to stage our annual live production at the Lyric Theatre during February Half Term 2021.
Whilst we are extremely disappointed to have had to take this decision, we are also conscious that the safety of our cast, crew and audiences must take precedence over everything else. We are currently exploring other possible options and will let everyone know as soon as any decision has been made.
It is our current intention that our next annual live production will be during February Half Term 2022. We are delighted to announce that we have already secured the license to perform ‘Shrek the Musical’ and the planning for this has already begun in earnest. We know that this will appeal to those wishing to take part as well as a wide audience of all ages and we are looking forward to putting the Carmarthen Youth Opera stamp on this much-loved, colourful and extremely popular musical.
In the meantime, we hope that everyone is staying safe during these difficult times. We understand and appreciate, that for many of our supporters and sponsors, these last few months have been especially difficult and indeed continue to be so. We have no doubt that the return to normality, in whatever form it takes, will be a slow process and hope that during this recovery period everyone involved including our audiences will support the local business community who have so loyally supported us in the past.
Stay safe and hopefully see you soon.
