RAIN OR SHINE, you can always find us at the Amphitheatre!

The show must go on!  Being an outdoor theatre company, our fearless actors will not be deterred by a little rain and will continue to entertain you in the case of light showers.  Complimentary umbrellas are available for audience use!

In extreme weather, such as lightning (or any other condition that presents a danger to actors and audience) the show will be cancelled.  Your ticket will, of course, be honoured and exchanged for any other performance that season!

Shows will only be cancelled in the case of extreme weather, and will not be relocated to an indoor venue.

If the show is cancelled in advance, a decision is made one hour prior to the start time.  At that time, we’ll post a notice on our website, Facebook page, place a recording on our Box Office answering machine (613-925-5788) and will also disseminate this info by Twitter.

If weather becomes an issue during a performance, we may momentarily pause the production (a wonderful way for the audience to meet the actors, as they take shelter together under our beautiful gazebo)!  If the shower does not pass in under 20 minutes, we wil cancel the performance.

In all cases of a rain-out your tickets will be exchanged for another performance.  We also honour a ticket exchange if you choose to leave due to a light shower (but the show continues).

We look forward to seeing you at the theatre...and a dry summer!

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
