The show may continue through light wind or rain. If passing showers prove too much for the show to continue safely, Delaware Shakespeare staff may call a 20-minute rain delay. If it is not possible to continue, the performance will be canceled and rain vouchers will be issued for any performance during the remainder of the run. In cases of extreme weather or if lightning strikes within 10 miles, the performance is canceled immediately and rain vouchers are issued.
We do our best to avoid canceling in advance, as summer storms come and go quickly and can be difficult to predict. If we do have to call off the show entirely for the night in advance, we will announce the news on Facebook. Advance ticket holders will be contacted by email, and they can move their tickets to another show or a request a refund.
Check our Facebook page for any necessary weather updates on the day of a show.
