What happens if it rains?

RAIN POLICY

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 will 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.


Being outdoors and by the water, what do we need to bring?

Matinees can sometimes be very hot, so we strongly advise bringing a sunhat or sun-brella with you, as there is limited shade in the amphitheatre.

We don't like to turn anyone away from our shows, but some visitors are less welcome than others! We have a mosquito trap placed in the amphitheatre, which makes a big difference, but if you are particularly sensitive to mosquitoes you might want to bring some insect repellant with you, just in case.

The marina is a beautiful setting for a picnic - you're welcome to make use of the picnic tables dotted around the lighthouse and in Riverwalk Park.

What are the seating arrangements?
We recommend that you bring a lawn chair, blanket or cushion with you, but if you prefer, a limited number of chairs are available to rent for $3 each, or cushions for $1.

We open the amphitheatre for you to place your chairs 30 minutes before the start of the show.

How do I buy tickets?
Book online by clicking here. Alternatively, you can call us during regular office hours to make a credit card booking over the phone. You will then be able to collect your tickets at the amphitheatre on the night of the performance.

Can I buy tickets at the door?
Yes! Our box office opens at the amphitheatre 60 minutes before the start of the performance. We accept cash, Debit, Visa and Mastercard.

Where can we park?
Prescott has a number of free parking lots, all within walking distance of the amphitheatre. The largest can be found right beside the river at the end of Centre Street (turn south at the Clock Tower!)

Can we get refreshments?
The lighthouse in the harbour stocks some yummy soft-serve ice cream. At the amphitheatre itself, we sell a selection of water, pop and candy bars.

The Red George Pub sells cold beer, wine and cider in the amphitheatre before the show and during intermission.

How long is intermission?
Intermission lasts 15 minutes. You're welcome to bring your refreshments back into the amphitheatre with you.

Will the plays be suitable for my children?
We strive to make our productions accessible for audiences of all ages, but we realize that every family must set their own guidelines. If you have any concerns about the play's subject matter or language, we encourage you to contact us before buying your tickets to discuss whether it will be appropriate for your children.

I'm an actor - how do I audition for the Festival?
Auditions are usually held early in the new year. Professional actors who are interested in being considered for casting are requested to send their headshot, resume and a short covering letter outlining their interest in the Festival to our Artistic Director.
