The COVID-19 phenomenon has overtaken much of the world and in our corner of it, the Performing Arts are suffering greatly.

Many of our Member Groups have had to cancel or indefinitely postpone their forthcoming productions. They are all very disappointed to have to do that. Indeed, two major productions were to have opened in the last two days, so the enormous efforts of the companies, their casts and crews have at this stage come to a halt. Others had opening nights due in the next week or two.

It is a sad and difficult time for TASA group and individual members. The TASA committee and reviewers are disappointed on your behalf, and the Association’s own activities have also had to be put to one side. TASA is looking into various options for the upcoming AGM and a members’ forum and workshop such as the use of video conferencing. TASA will be in touch with members once we have more details.

TASA recommends that all ticket holders and supporters stay up to date with our member companies, via their websites or social media about their current and future recommendations.

We wish all members and supporters good health and safety.

Our online services will resume at the first opportunity.
