LYME Regis Pantomime Society has had to postpone its 2021 production of ‘Peter Pan’ until the following year.

Members of the society this week voted to delay the production due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and social distancing regulations.

Instead, the society will concentrate on fundraising over the next year.

Chairman Sarah Causley said: “It is with sadness that the decision has been made to postpone our 2021 pantomime, ‘Peter Pan’.

“The committee agreed to let the members vote on whether, given the current situation regarding the pandemic, we should go ahead with plans for our February 2021 production, or postpone it until 2022. The majority of members voted in favour of postponing.

“However, we remain positive, and will focus on fundraising in the coming year so that ‘Peter Pan’ 2022 can be bigger and better than ever.

“We will also consider the possibility of staging a one off show in the summer, should it be deemed safe and viable to do so.

“Small voluntarily run, non-profit making groups have been hit extremely hard due to COVID-19, so we would like to take this opportunity to let you know that anyone who wishes to help us by becoming a member of our society, can do so for £10 a year.

“Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to whisking you off to Never Never Land in 2022.”
