As we return to the business of theatre in 2020 the Critical Stages team would like to take a moment to acknowledge the devastating fire events of this Summer, and extend our heartfelt best to all of those who have, and continue to be, affected.
As a touring theatre company we find so much of our planning involves pouring over maps and routes across Australia. It has been heartbreaking and at times terrifying to look at these same maps through the lens of this national tragedy.
We are so fortunate to be welcomed into regional communities around the country, and this gratitude becomes ever more acute when we think of how many of our friends and partners have been at the forefront of the fires.
We hope that you are all safe, that the coming months bring respite, and that the process of repair and rebuilding is a swift one for all of you.
Here at Critical Stages Touring, we’re about to kick off a big year of bringing communities together for great entertainment, and we’ll be talking about that very soon. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for support if you need it. Whether it’s a friendly chat about theatre, an ear to hear your concerns, or some other way we can help support your community, please let us know.
Chris & the CST Team.
