A message from LaMama re. programming:
As we are all very aware, our community is currently experiencing unprecedented health concerns. While La Mama Courthouse is a small venue, with a capacity of only 75 people, we feel that we must implement some necessary steps for the wellbeing of all.
La Mama will close at the end of this week, allowing the season of Running With Emus to run its course, closing this Sunday 22nd March.
We will be cancelling tonight’s performance of Poetica and postponing the upcoming La Mama Mobile tour Ladies of the Bay.
It is with sadness and concern for our artists that we will be postponing our entire Comedy Festival season, including the productions of: We Too Us Too Me Too Too Too, Incognito!, The Business of God and Mrs. Robinson: A Soap Cabaret.
We hope to re-program all these productions in 2021 and trust you will understand the need for this decision at this time.
We strongly encourage anyone who has bought a ticket to consider making this a donation to the artists involved. This is a very unnerving time for all, but the independent arts sector is, as always, particularly vulnerable. The artists have been working very hard and we hope to support them as best as we can. We have set up the possibility of donating directly to artists, so please go to the show pages on our website if you are in a position to support. For all Comedy Festival shows please go HERE
Of course, we do also understand those audience members that are not in a position to donate, and if this is the case, please call (03) 9347 6948 or email [email protected] to process your refund.
In the meantime, please know that La Mama is taking all suggested hygiene precautions and encourages all audience to do the same. We kindly request that anyone with any symptoms or who has been travelling overseas recently stays away for now. However, we warmly welcome everyone else to come this week, and we’ll be taking measures to ensure that you are afforded enough space from other audience members to be in line with the needs of social distancing while you enjoy the beautiful production of Running With Emus.
