Following the recent announcement that Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent will be placed in Tier 3 following the national lockdown, the New Vic will be postponing its production of Coppelia – A Mystery until 2021.

Thank you for your continued support of the New Vic. We are committed to creating distinctive theatre in distinctive spaces, for audiences of all ages to be inspired and entertained – and we will carry on working on our plans for the future so that we can be here when audiences can come back to us for performances.
