Temporary Theatre Closure

The Civic Theatre has cancelled the performance of Sweeney Todd this week after experiencing a few issues with the ceiling above the stage.

Rotherham Theatres Manager Jo Longworth said this week’s performance of Sweeney Todd had been cancelled after two small pieces of wood came loose in the ceiling area above the stage.

She added: “The stage area has been cordoned off as a precautionary measure to allow the necessary repairs to be completed. There will be an inspection of the roof on Friday and we hope the theatre will be in a position to reopen within a few days.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause to customers and we are working closely with the production company to hopefully offer alternative dates.

“In the meantime, we are contacting customers direct to inform them of the cancellation.”
