The VDL Awards 2020 announcement

Dear Members,

It is with regret that The VDL announces the decision to cancel the 2020 Awards program due to the widespread impact of Covid-19 on our member companies and their scheduled productions for the greater part of this year. This decision is an unfortunate one to have to make however it reflects the wishes of a number of our members, as well as our adjudicators, who have contacted the VDL. The Committee agrees with their concerns that the Awards program is no longer viable given the number of shows that will not now go ahead.

Refunds for entry fees will be arranged by the Treasurer.

Companies please change the details of your What’s On listing on the VDL website by logging in and setting the entry to draft.  This will hide it from the What’s On listing.  Alternatively you can swap the graphic for one that includes ‘postponed’ or ‘cancelled’, or you can alter the description to reflect any changes you wish to communicate.  Please request assistance if necessary.

The VDL extends our sympathy and best wishes to all companies and individuals who have been impacted by cancelled shows and we look forward to better times in 2021 for community theatre. 

Thankyou on behalf of the VDL Committee.

Bruce Cochrane, President

Alison Campbell Rate, Secretary
