Weather Cancellation Policy

What happens if it rains?

Usually performances do proceed if there is only very light misty drizzle, however, from time to time, it will be necessary to cancel a performance.

Whilst forecasts are naturally used as a guide, the decision to cancel a show is made by Australian Shakespeare Company production staff on site and ONLY on the day of performance.

Weather conditions can be very changeable and also very much localised. It may be raining in your town but dry and sunny at the performance site. The Australian Shakespeare Company is very mindful of the comfort and enjoyment of its patrons and we make every effort to not cancel performances unnecessarily. There will be times, if weather conditions change unexpectedly, when shows are cancelled just prior to performance or at a time when it is not possible to contact everyone far enough in advance to prevent unnecessary travel.

Weather Cancellation Policy: If the Australian Shakespeare Company cancels the performance due to inclement weather the performance will be reschedule to the following night (March 11th, 2018) and your tickets will be valid for that performance. If the rescheduled 11th March 2018 performance is also cancelled due to inclement weather the Australian Shakespeare Company will provide you with a lifetime credit note for the value of your tickets (not including any booking or handling fees) which can be used for any ASC performances anytime anywhere. A credit note will only be offered if the performance is officially cancelled. When a performance is cancelled in advance of the scheduled start time due to weather conditions, where possible and time permitting, every effort is made to inform ticket holders by SMS or telephone.
