It has been announced that the show will play its final performance at the Southbank Centre on the 22nd January.
The producers of Bring It On The Musical have sadly confirmed that due to he impact of rising Covid-19 cases and self-isolation requirements resulting in 13 cancelled performances, the show will no longer be able to continue its tour. Performances at the Southbank Centre are unaffected and will go ahead as scheduled, with its final performance taking place on the 22nd January.
Talking about the news Selladoor Worldwide said: “Cancelling 13 performances has resulted in an overwhelming loss of income for the production during a peak period that would otherwise have provided a vital financial backbone of the tour. This lost income, amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds, has sadly rendered the remainder of the tour financially unsustainable. It would be irresponsible for us to continue, and we therefore have no option but to cancel the remainder of the tour.
We have not taken this decision lightly and have explored every possible alternative to avoid cancellation. Selladoor remain incredibly proud of this fantastically received production and are grateful to everyone who has worked so hard on it, and to all the audiences who have cheered us on. We are only too aware of the impact this will have on our wonderful cast, crew, musicians and creative team – as well as our audiences, venues and suppliers we had been due to work with during the tour. We are heartbroken that we have been forced into this position, but the impact of these cancellations caused by Omicron has left us with no other choice.”
