FORTUNE MISFORTUNE: BEYER BAILS
The Fortune Theatre has announced that due to the withdrawal of Ms. Georgina Beyer from the production of Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks the season has been cancelled.
Citing, personal and professional performance difficulties, Georgina has found the move from her parliamentary career to that of a professional actor much more demanding than expected.
This is a huge disappointment to Georgina, her co-star Douglas Kamo, director Hilary Norris and everyone involved in the production but a decision had to be taken after it became clear that the performance would not reach the standards expected by everyone involved.
The Fortune Theatre apologises for any inconvenience to ticket holders, and would like to thank our patrons, sponsors and business partners for their support in this matter.
Refunds are available for those who have already purchased tickets. Tickets may also be transferred to another production or a gift voucher.
Georgina does not wish to disappoint Dunedin and is keen to return later in the year to entertain audiences with a more anecdotal series of performances.
