We are encouraged by your enthusiastic feedback after every performance of our current offering, Bending & Bonding. We heard your call for the play to have an extended run.

“You are, however, well aware of the CONVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging the world and our government’s efforts to contain it which we cannot but support.

“In view of the lastest directive from the State Government restricting gathering of people to below 20, the management of Eroz Theatre hereby announces suspension of all performances till further notice.

“Be rest assured that tickets already purchased for upcoming shows will remain valid upon resumption. And we hope that will be soon.

“Whatever you do, please and please, stay safe and follow guidelines issued by NCDC and Lagos State Government with regards to this pandemic.

“Nothing is more important than your life. You are of supreme importance to us. Together we shall overcome. Ikorodu shall survive this. May we come out better and stronger for it. Do spare a thought and prayer for all our health workers who are in the forefront of this battle for us. We pray God’s protection upon them. We barely can wait to have you back in the theatre!”
