Additional Information

Inclement Weather:  In the case of inclement weather, most shows will go on as scheduled.  Only under the most extreme circumstances, will a performance be cancelled.  Since events are planned many months in advance, we never cancel a performance if the scheduled performers are able to provide the show.  So, even if the local weather is nasty, if the performers are ready to go on as scheduled, we present the show.  It is then up to your personal judgment as to whether or not to attend. Sorry, if you elect not to attend we cannot issue a refund for your ticket(s).  If there is no show to present, we would of course cancel and try to re-schedule the event.  As a ticket holder, you would be notified as to your options.


Holding Tickets: In order to “hold” a ticket in your name, payment will need to be made.
Refunds/Exchanges: All sales are final.  We cannot issue refunds on tickets.  In the event a show is postponed or cancelled a refund/exchange will be made at the discretion of the Box Office Manager.
