SHORT AND SWEET THEATRE – 2021 SYDNEY WEEK FIVE @ AMPA TOM MANN THEATRE

Finally and just amazing that until the end of  November, that SHORT AND SWEET is back in Sydney, to be followed during February 2022 by the SHORT AND SWEET finals series. With everyone in the audience all correctly wearing their disposable face masks, and of course the infamously useless “neck-nappy” was not seen anywhere.

Unique storytelling, provided only for the double-vaccinated and triple-vaccinated. All of the audience completely unwilling to breathe in the air expelled from an asymptomatic person – unknowingly infectious in the community. No fear of experiencing either long-covid OR break-through-covid OR experiencing the new for November the  Omicron (B.1.1.529)  SARS-CoV-2 Variant.   with the audience all correctly wearing their face mask when in the foyer and in the auditorium.

Despite waning covid-19 WUHAN vaccine immunity, all those second WUHAN vaccinated in late June 2021, will get their third WUHAN booster vaccine in December 2021.

S+S Festival Producer, Belinda Ling, warmly welcomed the huge audience attending on Friday Night.
