A scene from Cinderella at Cork’s Everyman Theatre last Christmas
Cork’s The Everyman, and CADA Performing Arts Academy have called off this year’s pantomime due to tough rona public safety measures.
Indoor gatherings are currently permissible for up to 50 people, with the expectation that this will increase from August 10.
Jean Kearney writes:
Even with an easing of restrictions, it is unrealistic to successfully programme a show as complex as the annual pantomime under the 2m social distancing measures, which would allow for a maximum of 85 people in the auditorium of The Everyman at one time, including the artists on stage.
The cancellation is an incredible setback for The Everyman with far-reaching implications…and a massive disappointment to the 31,000 audience members that come each year for their traditional family outing to the pantomime at The Everyman…
