Whimsical Productions regrets to inform that our upcoming production of The Theory of Relativity,
originally scheduled for June 18-27, 2020 has been postponed until 2021.
In light of the recent developments of the global pandemic COVID-19, and the current restrictions on social distancing, it has become non-viable to continue as a result of our inability to rehearse and perform together in-space.
We appreciate the efforts of our cast, production team and the Whimsical Core team during this time as we have had to make key decisions, prioritising the health and safety of our members and audience.
The Theory of Relativity held auditions in February and began rehearsals in early March 2020. We quickly moved to online rehearsals from the second week as we searched for a way to possibly continue if the situation improved and we had more information.
This decision has not been made lightly. Whimsical Productions acknowledges the impact this pandemic has had on working artists, arts companies and venues. This is a challenging time for the arts industry and it's important that we all support each other.
We would like to thank Flight Path Theatre, the Australian Institute of Music and the City of Sydney council for assisting us in hosting our auditions and early rehearsals and for Hal Leonard Australia for allowing us to postpone the show to a new date in 2021.
We hope to be able to confirm new performance dates with you soon.

"Take a Physics manual, blend it with the sound of The Book of Mormon, the hilariously nerdy references of The Big Bang Theory, a sprinkle of Chicago, few drops of Glee, bake it in a Broadway bowl, use all the originality you can have....That’s the successful recipe for the spectacular song cycle, The Theory of Relativity."
