The prom musical has been cancelled due to an allergy
News.co.nz – The Prom, the musical starring Victoria’s favourite dance, The Bachelor, is to be cancelled due an allergy.
The prom musical is set to take place at Wellington’s O’Connell Theatre on January 21, but a statement released today said that the production has been postponed until January 18.
It has been put on hold while the allergy testing is conducted and will be rescheduled on January 18 at 11:00am, the statement said.
Victoria’s favourite dancing and fashion brand, The Bachelorette, has also announced that it will not be performing the musical at the Royal Albert Hall this year, due to its sensitivity to certain allergens.
A spokesperson said that due to the allergy, the performance will not go ahead.
“This decision is not about the performers or their ability to perform the show, it is about the performance of their allergies.
We have spoken to the producers of the show and they have agreed to cancel the show,” the spokesperson said.”
As part of this decision, we will also be removing all references to the musical from the website.
In a statement to News.au, Victoria’s Bachelorettes, The Odeon Theatre and Odeons Entertainment Group said they were saddened to have to make this announcement.
Odeon has been operating The Prom since 2009 and has been a major Wellington venue since 2010.
Bachelorettes and The Benders has sold out every night of every season since 2010, and is a big draw for locals and visitors alike.
New Zealand’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is currently working with The O’Donnell Theatre to determine the exact allergens that are causing the allergy to occur.
Melbourne, Melbourne City, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin have all been added to the list of cities where The Prom is set.
If you have allergies, you should call your GP.
More to come.
