The Playhouse has rescheduled many other dates in 2020, but still has tickets on sale for three dates during August. ATG says that it is automatically transferring tickets for rescheduled shows to the new dates.

The news comes soon after the announcement from Selladoor International that it is suspending all its currently scheduled tours and postponing them until 2021/2022.

The only Edinburgh Playhouse date effected by the Selladoor announcement is for Footloose, which had been scheduled for October this year. It will now tour in Spring 2021, arriving at the Playhouse in July 2021.

Footloose had also been due to play the Glasgow King’s. The August 2020 dates have been rescheduled to April 2021.

Selladoor’s tour of Bring It On the Musical and 9 to 5 the Musical had been due to play the Glasgow King’s in September this year. With Bring It On the Musical playing the Edinburgh Festival Theatre in November.

Both tours have yet to be rescheduled, but 9 to 5 is expected to open in Spring 2021, with Bring it On in the Autumn 2021.
