Bosses at the venue and Freckle Productions apologised to ticket-holders as they broke the news today.

They said this morning’s performance was able to go ahead but the cast member’s condition had ‘worsened considerably’ this afternoon, meaning it was impossible to put on the afternoon show.

The show is based on the book of the same name by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, about a hapless young pupil’s struggles at dragon school.

This was the last day in a three-day run of the Easter holiday show at City Hall.

Sheffield City Hall said: “Unforunately this afternoon’s performance of Zog at Sheffield City Hall was cancelled due to a cast member being taken ill.

“We were able to present the morning’s performance, and whilst every endeavour was made to ensure the second performance could go ahead, the cast member’s condition worsened considerably this afternoon.

“We apologise wholeheartedly for the inconvenience caused to those in attendance. All customers will automatically be refunded.

“Any customers with further queries are advised to contact the City Hall box office on 0114 278 9789 or email customerservices@sheffieldcityhall.co.uk.”
