New opening dates have been confirmed for West End show Wonderville after it was halted last week due to a Covid case among the team.

It will begin performances at the Palace Theatre on 21 July with a gala opening night on 2 August. Tickets are now on sale through to 30 August.

The show features some of the world’s best illusionists and magic acts including Chris Cox, Josephine Lee, Young and Strange, and Edward Hilsum, plus hula hoop artists Amazí and Symoné.

On Friday, the producers put out a statement saying: “Our whole team have been adhering to extremely thorough and diligent measures as all in Theatreland work under the most unique circumstances. Unfortunately, a member of the Wonderville team has sadly tested positive for Covid-19.

“To ensure that we are adhering to the strictest of protocols and maintaining the safety of all involved, our opening is paused. Our first performance will now be on Wednesday 21 July. We all are incredibly excited to welcome you to Wonderville then and to share the joy, laughter, and wonder that we have been enjoying throughout our rehearsals. 

“The Wonderville team are so sorry that this means our first six performances cannot go ahead, but the safety of our Wonderville family and audience members remains our number one priority.”

Ticket buyers have been contacted by their point of purchase via email and offered the option to exchange their tickets or receive a refund or credit voucher. Full refunds are offered to all customers who are unable to move their tickets to an alternative performance. Anyone who booked via a ticket agent or other third party will be contacted by them for refunds or alternative dates.
