Squad Goals, the new musical which is playing at the Dagenham and Redbridge Football Ground, will finish performances on the 26th September. The show was due to run until the 10th October. The sho received a 4-Star rating from our very own reviewer.
Caspa productions, the producers of the show released the following statement:
“It is with huge regret that we have taken the decision to end the current run of Squad Goals after the evening performance on Saturday 26th Sept.
This is a really tough decision. We overcame so many hurdles to put on Covid-safe performances and we are so proud of our team for all they’ve done to make this happen. But the increasing threat of further restrictions is putting the production at risk.
We have to be able to protect everyone’s safety, but we’re also working with limited resources. The pandemic has already had an adverse impact on the production and the possibility of a national or local lockdown has created further uncertainty.
We hope to welcome as many people as possible to the show this week. We are inviting ticketholders booked later in the run to switch to an earlier performance, or alternatively receive a full refund. For those who have not yet booked tickets, there are still some places available but hurry!”
Justin Williams, the Pocket Size Theatre reviewer who saw the show, said ‘It’s beyond commendable that this production is employing and giving opportunities to so many performers and offering both the area, society and those just want entertaining so much. We’re taught to think, encouraged to dream and reminded that whatever our goals are, we have the ability to change the goalposts in life whenever we wish!” Read the full review here.
