Your Visit

We hope that you are still staying safe and well as lockdown eases. Thank you for your support over the past few challenging months. The current situation caused by the Covid 19 pandemic continues to evolve quickly but we now feel we have some clarity about the months ahead. We have to be realistic and unfortunately this means that it will be a little while longer before we are able to welcome you back to Sherman Theatre.

We have had to take the difficult decision to remain closed until spring 2021 to ensure that we can survive to continue to serve you in the long term. Therefore, sadly our autumn and Christmas performances will not take place as scheduled. We are pleased however to let you know that we have rescheduled the majority of these productions and performances (including those from Spring 2020) to next year, including our Christmas productions: A Christmas Carol and The Elves and the Shoemaker / Y Coblynnod a’r Crydd, An Enemy of the People and The Merthyr Stigmatist. We have not yet been able to re-schedule Romeo and Julie by Gary Owen but we and our co-production partners the National Theatre remain hopeful that we can stage the production in the future.

Read on for details of all changes and next steps if you are a ticketholder. For your convenience we will be re-opening the Box Office phone line on selected days throughout the summer, although the Box Office and the theatre building will remain closed. The decision not to open Sherman Theatre this autumn was not an easy one, but is a necessary one to help ensure our survival and long term sustainability. Many of the productions planned for the autumn are made at the Sherman and their creation is supported by public funds. It would therefore not be responsible for us to invest now in a programme of work for which, given the current uncertainty, we may not be in a position to sell enough tickets to recoup costs.

Christmas at Sherman Theatre is a very special time and we are sad not to be able to share it with you in the usual way in 2020. We still want to make it a magical experience for you and we are making plans for our Christmas gift to you.

Even though our doors will be closed we will continue to work to engage and entertain you throughout the autumn with a busy and vibrant programme. At its core is Heart of Cardiff a series of new audio theatre experiences which will take you and your imagination on adventures across your city. You will meet people and communities you may never have met before and hear their stories. Through these audio stories you may perhaps even see Cardiff a bit differently. Together the audio experiences will create a portrait of the city we all love. This project was made possible through funding from the Arts Council of Wales’s National Lottery Fund. The audio experiences will be complemented by work with communities, workshops and events. Throughout the autumn we will continue to connect with communities through our ground breaking Sherman 5 programme which is funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Our Creative Engagement department will expand its innovative work to develop young people including through Sherman Youth Theatre.

Thank you again for your continued support. We look forward to welcoming you to Sherman Theatre again in 2021. Take care.
