Performance Cancellations

Performance cancellations due to weather or other circumstances are very rare. When a performance must be cancelled, we will make every attempt to contact you and to make arrangements for an alternative date. Please note: Civic Theatre does not offer refunds due to bad weather when a performance is taking place.
