Show’s opening night cancelled

Technical issues have forced the cancellation of tonight’s Halifax Amateur Operatic Society’s production of Our House at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax.

Society chairman Geoff Cowgill said: “We’ve built our own set. We got it into theatre and there are one or two technical issues that we cannot resolve in time.

“We could have written some parts out but we took the decision last night to cancel and make sure everything is right for Thursday.

“We apologise to those who were coming tonight. It was a small audience and everyone will be given the choice of their money back or a seat on another night.”

The show - a love story played out to music of the happy band Madness - will now run from tomorrow through to Saturday (7.15 pm).

Tickets from £12 to £23 are availiable via www.ourhousethemusical.com or the box office on 01422 351158.
