THE KING AND I

A great deal of misinformation has appeared in certain newspapers regarding the cancellation of our performances at the Pavilion Theatre earlier this year. It suggested that the scenery we had supplied did not meet Health & Safety standards.

The Apollo Players entirely disputes this and would point out that the same scenery was checked by South Lanarkshire Council shortly afterwards and found it to be totally acceptable thus allowing performances using the same scenery to go ahead at The Village Theatre in East Kilbride.

We are now consulting with solicitors regarding taking action against the Pavilion Theatre
