The UK tour of WONDERLAND has been cancelled.

The musical production of WONDERLAND due to take place at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre next week has unfortunately been cancelled with immediate effect. The remaining tour dates at theatres in Richmond and Bournemouth have also been cancelled. 

Sales for the production in Wolverhampton had been strong with over 4000 people due to attend. The decision to cancel has been made by the producers directly and Wolverhampton Grand Theatre has just been notified of the cancellation.

Adrian Jackson CEO and Artistic Director of Wolverhampton Grand said, "Wonderland has performed in over 25 venues up and down the country and it is extremely disappointing that Wolverhampton audiences will not now have the opportunity to see it. Cancelling a production is never taken lightly and only when all other options have been exhausted. Unfortunately, in the case of Wonderland, it is understood that the production company had no other option. The Grand Theatre prides itself on the experience and customer service we deliver to our patrons and we deeply apologise for this situation which is completely outside the control of the theatre.”

A full refund will be issued to everyone who has purchased a ticket and the sales team are already contacting customers. Anybody wishing to discuss further can call the Box Office on 01902 42 92 12.

The show had previous come under fire from the Stage after they published an article explaining the reason of the recent cancellation of shows in the Swansea Grand Theatre following a financial dispute with suppliers.

The shows were cancelled after Wonderland the Musical Ltd, which is run by Neil Eckersley, failed to pay supplier Orbital Sound.

A statement on the Swansea Grand Theatre Facebook page said: "Unfortunately, due to continuing technical difficulties we regret to announce that this week’s show Wonderland will not be going ahead as planned."

"If you have tickets we will be contacting you with further information as soon as possible. The technical difficulties the show’s company were striving their best to resolve have become insurmountable and as a result, no performances will be happening at this venue."

"We sincerely apologise to our customers for the inconvenience, please know that our staff did everything possible to facilitate and support this production going ahead, but at this point it has become impossible."
