With the recently announced social distancing measures and in an effort to keep its staff and audience safe, SRT has announced that its upcoming show Fly High has been postponed to October 2020.
Fly High – Postponed to October
Originally set to open on Saturday, 21 March, Fly High is a show about two friends who share the dream of flying. The performance incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts together with the message of adopting a growth mindset and resilience.
Those who have already bought tickets to Fly High can choose to either swop their tickets to Chicken Little in Mandarin, which is scheduled for August 2020, or apply for a full refund.
In an announcement on its website, SRT said, “This decision was not an easy one. Hours of hard work and dedication go into every one of our shows, which provide jobs for many who rely on SRT to make a living. The COVID-19 situation is drastically impacting our industry and the livelihoods of many.”
This underscores the many challenges which those in the events and entertainment industries have been facing with the COVID-19 outbreak.
Those who wish to support the SRT can help by making a donation to the non-profit charity. According to SRT, “By contributing as a Friend of SRT, you will directly enable us to continue paying our artists and employees who worked so hard on Fly High the last few months.”
