Go to Bell Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors

This show is part of Collected Works 2020

Collected Works 2020
   

2 - 10 October 2020

 

Cancelled

A message from Bell Shakespeare:  Like all companies in the live performance sector, Bell Shakespeare has been significantly impacted by the essential restrictions enforced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Comedy of Errors was to be a major national tour scheduled to open in regional NSW in June, then touring to 28 Australian venues before culminating in performances at the Canberra Theatre Centre and finally the Sydney Opera House in October. Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel the tour in its entirety. Bell Shakespeare’s annual national tour is at the heart of what we do – sharing Shakespeare with Australians everywhere. It is a highlight of our year, and the decision to cancel has not been made lightly. But as ever, the health and wellbeing of our artists and communities remains the primary concern for us all. We thank you for your support and friendship during this difficult time. You may wish to consider donating the value of your tickets to Bell Shakespeare to help them through this unprecedented crisis. If so, please visit this link: https://bellshakespeare.com.au/support-us/ Canberra Theatre Centre: Where a credit card or PayPal was used to make your purchase, Canberra Theatre Centre will refund the full transaction value to that card. If you have recently changed your credit card details or obtained a new credit card since making your purchase, please get in touch with our box office on 02 6275 2700 or by email CanberraTicketing@act.gov.au We will continue to follow Government advice regarding future performances at Canberra Theatre Centre.
