Our Weather Policies and Procedures

Unto every Bard in the Barracks run, a little rain must fall… But hopefully the rain will not raineth every day…

Advance tickets purchased for rained-out performances will be refunded and patrons will be able to rebook for another performance. If rain forces the cancellation of a performance already in progress, audience members can use their ticket stub for free admittance to a subsequent performance (depending on ticket availability), or can opt for a ticket refund and rebook for a subsequent performance if the stoppage occurs prior to one hour into the show. For more on our weather policy, see below. Requests for non-weather-related cancellations or exchanges will be accommodated until 24 hours prior to showtime.

Every effort will be made to avoid cancelling the show. We cancel performances rarely, and only in case of sustained rain or threat of thunderstorms at show time. Rain earlier in the day will not cause show cancellations, but bring a blanket so you don’t have to sit on wet ground. The play will go ahead in case of intermittent light rain/drizzle, so audience members are encouraged to dress appropriately.

Because we try to avoid cancellations, decisions on whether to proceed with the show will sometimes not be made until quite close to show time (around 7:30 PM). For updates on show status, please call 506-545-8214. Weather-related show updates will also be sent out via Twitter (follow us: @BardBarracks), Facebook, and posted on this website.

In the event of rainouts on the final weekend of the show, an additional performance may be added to the run on Monday, July 5. Check this site for updates. Better yet, come see the show early on to avoid final weekend rainout heartbreak!
