One of the homes, which accommodated 12 members of the 2011 stage crew, was destroyed by fire in the early hours of July 13. While none of the company was injured, all of their belongings which were to last them the duration of the summer season, were lost in the blaze.
Despite their loss, the crew and cast followed "the show must go on" motto and continued with performances of Jekyll & Hyde the afternoon of July 13.
