Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this an outdoor theatre?
A: Yes, we are located outdoors! Perchance Theatre is an Elizabethan style theatre, built after Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, England. There is a sailcloth roof that covers the audience area, so you're not totally exposed to the elements. However, we always recommend that you come prepared for the weather. Don't forget your rain jacket, sunscreen and bug spray! We also encourage people to bring any pillows and blankets with them if they'd like to bundle up and stay comfy on our wooden bench seating.
Q: Is this a dinner theatre?
A: No, Perchance Theatre is not a dinner theatre. However, we are located right next to Cupid's Haven Bed & Breakfast! They serve up delicious home-cooked meals. For reservations at Cupid's Haven, call 709-528-1555.
Q: What kind of seating is there? Can we bring our own chairs?
A: The seats are wooden bench-style in the round. You're encouraged to bring your own cushions for extra padding! The seating is not assigned. We don't allow people to bring their own chairs unless they should need it for medical reasons, as the pit area is utilized by the actors during the shows. There is a designated accessible seating area able to accommodate three wheelchairs.

Q: Do you cancel shows for rain?
A: The show must go on! However, sometimes it happens if the weather is particularly terrible. If we do cancel a show, we post on our website and all of our social medias (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) two hours before the show. We also let people know through our voicemail message, so call if you are curious. Those who had purchased tickets for that show date will be contacted via email used to purchase the tickets to arrange either a refund, or moving the tickets to a different date.
