Bridgwater based events complex, Junction24, has come to the rescue of the Taunton Scouts and Guides 2013 Gang Show after they were left in the lurch when The Brewhouse Theatre suddenly went in to administration last month.
Hundreds of ticket holders for the five nights of performance thought the show would be cancelled and their money lost, but now the Scouts, Guides, back-stage crew, families and friends are smiling again, thanks to Junction24. Not only will all tickets already sold for the shows be honoured, but “The [email protected]” also offers more space for additional seating. The show will run on its original dates – Tuesday 9 April until Saturday 13 April, inclusive.
Show Director, Dave Mullen, made the surprise announcement at Junction24 to key members of the cast after being offered the facility by Patch Jobson, Marketing and Events Manager of Junction24.
Dave Mullen comments, “We are really thrilled that the show can still go ahead for 2013. We had lost money and were struggling to find a solution, but we knew we just had to continue with our rehearsals and hope something would come along. Thankfully it did, in the shape of Junction24.”
Patch Jobson, Marketing and Events Manager at Junction24, said, “We don’t want regional audiences or community groups to suffer when we have the space, availability and passion to make sure these shows go ahead. I am so pleased we could help.”
