A statement from the theatre said: We have cancelled performances of Jack and the Beanstalk up to and including Christmas Eve because of several positive Covid tests within the company, leading to self-isolation.
"Those periods of self-isolation all end before or on Christmas Day, so we are currently able to bring the show back on Monday December 27. Fortunately, our teams have been working within ‘bubbles’, so our other shows and film screenings are unaffected.
"Meanwhile, a big shout-out to everyone for their understanding and support in these difficult times. After announcing the cancellations, we've had many lovely comments from people who, although disappointed, are mostly concerned for the wellbeing of the company and Stephen Joseph Theatre staff. Thank you!
Jack and the Beanstalk is due to run at the theatre until New Year's Eve
