Dear CHP Ticket Holders,
As you know we have taken the action to postpone ‘Things I Know To Be True’ and cancel ‘Always A Bridesmaid’, ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’ and ‘The Witches’ (Plays 3, 4 & 5 respectively).
Currently, ‘Entertaining Angels’ (play 6) is on hold.
We are in the process of refunding all ticket purchases for the 4 affected plays mentioned above. If you paid by credit card, and that credit card is still current, refunds should appear in your account shortly; please allow a couple of weeks for this to take place as our volunteers are processing these payments manually.
If you paid by cash, or, if your credit card has expired, we will reach out to you via the phone number or email you provided at the time of booking in order to work out how best to process your refund. This will take place after our team have finalised the electronic credit card refunds.
In the interim, we would appreciate if you held off calling Mel at our Box Office number to arrange refunds directly as this makes the whole process a lot harder.
A notice will be sent when ‘Things I Know To Be True’ tickets come back on sale as rebooking will be required for everyone: members, subscribers and previous ticket holders alike, and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
We appreciate your patience in these trying times and thank you for supporting Castle Hill Players and the Pavilion Theatre. We look forward to a future where you will once again join us, our curtain will open and we will be able to say, “on with the show!” ...

Today would have been the opening night for Things I Know to Be True by Andrew Bovell, directed by Carol Wimmer. Carol writes about her first hand experience of having a show postponed in the time of COVID-19 and an account of one of the final rehearsals. It is a beautiful and touching read. Thank you Stage Whispers for allowing us to share our story.
A message from Castle Hill Players President, Stephen Snars.
“We are grateful for your goodwill and support through the years and that has enabled us to be in a good position to ride out this storm”
Stay safe everyone- we can’t wait to open our doors again. Please keep checking our website and Facebook for updates.

Excellent positive message, Stephen. I wish our politicians could do half as well.
Nice work Mr Snars!
Good job Stephen Snars
This place and its people is special. Let’s all swamp it with positive energy and our presence once we can
Brilliant Stephen - sending ‘virtual’ hugs 🤗🤗🤗
Vale Tony Award winning Playwright, Terrence McNally, who passed away aged 81.
McNally’s work, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, was part of our 2015 Season at the Pavilion. It was directed by Peter Rhodes and starred Leigh Scanlon and David Went.
Loved this play
That was a great show, even if there was an audience member who showed her ignorance (after a lot of soft but not soft enough comments throughout the performance) by exclaiming ‘Oh! It’s Fur Elise - my favourite!’ when Au claire de la lune began. 🤣 Sad to hear of Mr McNally’s passing.

Following the announcement The Pavilion is dark for the foreseeable future, the cast of Things I Know To Be True met for a final time to put the show to bed. Backed up by the cast of Always A Bridesmaid and Management Committee a final rehearsal run of the show offered a great preview to what could've been. When all this is over, and this too will pass, it is hoped CHP will present this beautiful play to our supportive audiences. In the meantime, there will be maintenance done, reorganising of props and costumes and lots of fresh air, exercise and healthy fresh food. Stay safe everyone, we look forward to seeing you at The Pav as soon as possible. Stay in touch on FB and the website for updates. With lots of love and elbow bumps😀💪🎭❤ ...
Sending love from all your friends at Theatre on Chester. Community Theatre has always been there and will be there again!
So much love to the Pavilion Theatre - Castle Hill Players. Couldn't ask for a better theatre society to be part of. See you in a few months! ❤️
Have been a strong supporter of the Pavilion Theatre for over 25 years. So very impressed with your speedy and responsible decision to close for now. Really looking forward to your reopening. You’ll have two great shows ready to go!!
