Press release – My Fair Lady Cancelled

Cancellation of My Fair Lady

After much consultation and deliberation, the trustees of Showbiz Christchurch and Christchurch Music
Theatre Education Trust have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel our production of My Fair
Lady due to ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 and the financial risks associated with delivering a
musical of this scale.

This is a devastating blow for our creatives, artists, contractors, volunteers and crew as well as our
stakeholders and loyal audience members and we are deeply saddened that we cannot bring My Fair
Lady to Christchurch.

All ticket holders are entitled to a full refund. More details can be found here. Tickets purchased online
by credit or debit card will be refunded in full and patrons do not need to take any action. Patrons
should allow up to 30 working days for the refund to appear in their account. Any questions should be
directed to

We are looking forward to bringing the fabulous musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story to Christchurch
in September 2021 and continuing to deliver world-class musical productions for all Cantabrians in
years to come. Tickets for Buddy will be available from early next year.

Kia kaha
