Firstly, the committee at Philo hope that you are all coping with the strange world we live in at present. We trust you are all staying safe and looking after your mental and physical health so that we can all provide and enjoy a vibrant theatre scene in Canberra in 2021.
2020 is a year of buying time and conserving strength. We have endured fire and storms. We now suffer a pandemic.
None of us can say what will happen in the coming months but what we can say is that Philo's greatest strength is our people and their connection to the Canberra Theatre community. This is not the year to exhaust that strength, but allow people to take care of their loved ones and remain healthy.
Yet the show must go on. It must. Thousands of seats, every year. People who need time to stop for a while, to hear a perfect moment in sound and story, to see and share a show.
The show will go on. Perhaps not night to night, but certainly year to year.
Philo has been a major part of providing theatre to Canberrans for seven decades and Philo will be here next year.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
With the restrictions imposed by Government, the Philo AGM has been postponed until October 2020. A date will be announced when we are certain the required gathering can happen. We hope you will all attend to support our theatre community.
Philo has postponed 'Jersey Boys' to March 2021. We are hopeful that auditions will take place in early October, please watch this space for announcements.
Come and join us then for Jersey Boys.
Please take care and look after yourselves. We are looking forward to seeing you all in a theatre soon.
