It’s a small setback but the show will go on. That’s according to Burnie Musical Society director Del Polden, who recently announced that their upcoming Mamma Mia production will be delayed until October due to the evolving COVID situation in Tasmania. Originally scheduled to take the stage in March, Ms Polden said it was a disappointing call, but the right one. “At the end of last year, when we found out the borders were going to open, we scheduled a few extra dates at the Burnie Arts and Function Centre,” she said.

Ms Polden said the group had also recruited local health professionals to act as a kind of committee, to advise on whether or not to proceed in March was the right one “We just don’t know how people are going to feel comfortable stepping into the theater,” she said.

Those who have already purchased tickets are encouraged to contact the Burnie Arts and Function Center box office to arrange a transfer to the new show dates.
