No one could have anticipated the challenges that 2020 would bring.
The year began with the disappointing news that the renovations at the Union Theatre were delayed due to events outside the Council’s control.
We had booked “Les Misérables” to re-open the new theatre and decided to defer this production until the venue was ready.
Plans were made to stage “Jekyll and Hyde” as an alternative production at the Lithgow High School and we began rehearsals in February 2020.
The world changed a few short weeks later with COVID-19 sending us all into lockdown. We continued to stay in touch and support our members during this time with virtual rehearsals and online meetings.
We kept pushing the show dates back, hoping that things would improve however by September we came to the unfortunate realisation that we would not be able to stage a show in 2020.
2021 brought better news with the renovations completed and we then resumed plans to re-open the theatre with a big show, and no show is bigger than “Les Misérables”
We are now settled into our upgraded home and have already made exciting plans for some great shows, not ever seen before in Lithgow to follow Les Mis into 2022
