The following communication is an update to advice provided by ILT on 15 March 2020.
As previously indicated, ILT shares the concerns in the community about the COVID-19 virus and its unprecedented impact on our society.
The ILT Administration will comply with the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health and Queensland Health with regards to the COVID-19 situation, as well as following the suggested approach of Live Performance Australia and other industry bodies. While the Federal Government maintains its ban on non-essential gatherings of 100 or more within indoor areas and social distancing measures of 1 person per 4 square metres, it is impossible for us to function. The Federal Government’s closure of entertainment venues for the foreseeable future adds further weight to our decisions below.
Regretfully, we have had to make some difficult decisions. The next two productions, Waiting for God and Turn a Blind Eye will not proceed in 2020. Ticket holders for Waiting for God will be contacted individually and will receive a refund through the ILT Box Office.
Our One-Act Play Festival has been cancelled for 2020 and there will be no performances by our sub-groups until further notice. Our Tourific Troupers Tours will likewise be cancelled.
The safety and well-being of our members and patrons continues to be our priority. We thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times. We will constantly review our decisions in accordance with Government advice and advise accordingly.
Again, in line with the advice of our government and medical professionals, should you feel at all unwell or develop symptoms we strongly recommend that you follow the health guidelines to self-isolate and stay at home.
We look forward to your much-appreciated patronage once the current crisis is behind us.
From all of us at ILT, we thank you for your support and understanding.
