THE show will not go on at the Frankston Arts Centre.
The centre will close for nearly a month, from 16 March to 13 April, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A statement put out by the Frankston Arts Centre on 16 March read that “in line with the latest advice from the Australian federal and Victorian governments on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, Frankston Arts Centre will be temporarily closed from Monday 16 March through until Monday 13 April.”
“The venue closure means that all scheduled performances and events from Monday 16 March to Monday 13 April, 2020 at Frankston Arts Centre venues have been cancelled. Closures include FAC main theatre, Cube 37, the function centre and all ancillary spaces at the Frankston Arts Centre,” the statement read. “We understand cancellations are disappointing, and we ask for your patience and understanding at this difficult time.
“During this time the situation will be continually reviewed, based on the latest government advice. Decisions on any potential further closure will take into account any developments in the COVID-19 situation and government advice.”
Ticket holders for performances during the closure period from 18 March to 13 April will be contacted and refunded.
