Due to restrictions imposed under the Red setting of the Covid 19 Protection Framework, GMG Productions has been forced to cancel all remaining performances at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch.

Paul Mansfield, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are all devastated that it has come to this, having already rescheduled twice but we have to abide by the government guidelines. We are sad for the cast and crew and we are sad for you, Canterbury, who didn’t get to see this amazing production featuring an incredible New Zealand cast. We look forward to seeing you all in better times.”

The Isaac Theatre Royal shares in GMG Productions’ disappointment. We thank the cast and crew and our community for their consistent perseverance and never giving up on the delivery of this world-class production.

All ticket holders will be supplied with full refunds – they will be contacted by Ticketek NZ.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.
