Their last showing will be 24th December following the announcement that the Isle of Wight will enter Tier 3 from Boxing Day.
A spokesperson for Shanklin Theatre has said the Box Office will have to close or run with a limited team, so customers are being asked to be patient.
They are asking people NOT to contact the Box Office – they will be contacting all customers to process refunds. However, this may take a while over the Christmas period.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Shanklin Theatre has said:
“Sadly the curtain has to come down on our fabulous panto Rapunzel.
“Huge thanks to Spotlight for producing such a brilliant panto this year.
“Those lucky enough to have seen it have loved it – a truly bright spot in a tough year.
“Equal thanks go to all the theatre volunteers who made it possible to re-open and manage the five shows that have gone ahead.
“There’s been a great deal of work front and backstage to make Rapunzel happen in a safe way.
“Sorry to all those who are now left disappointed. Merry Christmas to all our supporters and best wishes for 2021.”
