When the meteorologists start talking about the chance of winter weather,
the Box Office receives a lot of calls about what happens if it snows on the
date of a performance. We thought since winter was now here, we'd go
ahead and post a specific page with the Snow Policy and weather related
First off, and maybe most important, before we can make any decision about
cancelling a show because of bad weather, we actually need to see what the
weather is actually like. Let's face it, more often than not, the
meteorologists get it wrong. So until we see something falling from
the sky, we operate under the old adage that the show will go on.
What happens if it actually snows?
Our performers and staff come from all over the region, so we have eyes all
across the area to let us know what the weather conditions are like.
We want to err on the side of safety for our guests and staff, so if the
weather is really bad, we will cancel a performance.
If we do this, now that we have a dedicated page on the website for
information like this, it will be posted here, as well as on the theatre's
FACEBOOK PAGE. More importantly, the
Box Office will contact whomever purchased the tickets and let them know the
show has been cancelled, and work with them to reschedule.
The official Snow Policy at Way Off Broadway is . . .
there is an old saying that we live by, "The show must go on." However, we are
very careful when it comes to bad weather. If the roads are clear and we
have no troubling getting the cast and staff in for the show (and those who
work at WOB
come from all over the area), then the show will go on. If the weather is
too bad, and we do cancel a performance, we will let everyone know and we
will work with everyone to reschedule their tickets. If a show does go
on and someone does not show up for their reservation, then those tickets
have been forfeited.
You can find this on our
RESERVATION POLICY PAGE.
If you have any questions, you can always feel free to contact the Box
Office at 301.662.6600 and anyone there will be able to help you.
