Dear HOS Supporters,
Our indomitable theatre spirit of ‘the show must go on’ cannot overcome COVID-19. The health and wellbeing of our patrons, guests, performers, crew and support staff must come first and so it is with great regret that we inform you Chicago, Broadway Banquet and the Quiz Night are postponed.
At this stage, we are planning on a dates later in the year but ultimately we will be guided by the Ministry of Health.
The Society has had a long and rich tradition of showcasing the very best of Waikato musical theatre, producing countless world class productions and winning multiple theatrical awards. Our mission to nurture, train and support the current and next generation of talented performers is unwavering.
Our recent financial difficulties saw us rise to the occasion by embarking on an ambitious fundraising journey. We will need to don our creative hats and come up with some imaginative ideas and solutions to continue our fundraising journey; if you have any thoughts please feel free to contact us.
We know that the arts and culture industry in New Zealand is resilient and look forward to seeing our community’s continued support for this sector as the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 virus start to lift.
Stay safe! Kia Kaha.
