The 7 Day Forecast looks bad for next week are you cancelling the shows?
Shakespeare under the Stars, The Wind in the Willows, Tinkerbell and the Dream Fairies and Sunday Sumemr Music Sessions are all outdoor event and as such are subject to prevailing weather conditions. Whilst forecasts are naturally used as a guide, the decision to cancel a show is made by production staff on site and ONLY on the day of performance.
Weather conditions in Melbourne and Sydney can be very changeable and also very much localised it may be raining in your suburb but dry and sunny at the performance site. The Australian Shakespeare Company is very mindful of the comfort and enjoyment of our 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.
If you are unsure about the weather conditions on your day of performance we are always happy to exchange your tickets should you prefer to attend another date but they must be exchanged in advance of your performance. Please call 03 8676 7511 or 02 9011 7704 during business hours Monday to Friday or email your booking details to firstname.lastname@example.org including your order number, booking name, number of tickets, mobile number, session booked for and preferred new session.

How early should I be at the show?
Shakespeare Under the Stars
The gates to the performance area will open 90 minutes prior to the start of the show.
The performance area will be open from 1 hour prior to the start of the show. As the children's shows move locations during the performance if you are planning a picnic it's best to come early and enjoy your treats before the show begins!
