Monday Night at the Apollo performances rescheduled!
Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and whether performances (both socially distanced and otherwise) can return, producers of Monday Night at the Apollo have rescheduled the series' run. Hosted by Greg Barnett, the upcoming concert series will now run on Monday, 12 April 2021; Monday, 26 April 2021; and Monday, 10 May 2021. Ten per cent of the profit on all tickets will be donated to charity.
Monday Night at the Apollo producers weigh in
The show's producers, Greg Barnett and Hugh Summers, stated: "We're so excited to be announcing revised dates and further cast for Monday Night At The Apollo. In light of the newly imposed national coronavirus restrictions, we feel it was the correct decision to postpone the original performances.
Public health and the safety of our audiences is our utmost priority and will always be the most important factor in informing any decisions we make. With that said, we truly believe that we are on the way back to reopening theatres and feel it is important to press ahead with getting these concerts staged. It, in no way, dampens our spirits, rather it strengthens our resolve to get the industry restarted. In doing so, we hope to be able to raise funds for ‘Acting For Others' to continue to support the thousands of freelancers who these latest restrictions will hit the hardest. Theatre and its audiences know how important it is to get back to normal, especially in these seemingly crucial final months. Therefore, we ask your support, kindness, and when needed, patience, as we navigate the difficult road ahead."
