The Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, is open for business as usual after it had to cancel a show last week over concerns surrounding original brickwork above the stage.

Work was undertaken on Saturday to make the area safe and the performance of Showstopper! went ahead as planned.

The theatre’s own production of Tim Firth’s Sign of the Times opens tonight and runs until January 31.

A Theatre Royal spokesman said: “The theatre is continuing as normal and the area of concern has now been made safe.

“In due course work will be undertaken to a long-term solution.

“We wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to bring back Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music in the near future.
