Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this an outdoor theatre?
A: Yes, we are located in the fresh outdoors! Perchance Theatre is an Elizabethan style theatre, modelled 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. Being Newfoundland, we always recommend that you come prepared for all weathers. Don't forget your rain jacket, hat, 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 and currently there are no food options onsite. A coffee shop is available at the Cupids Legacy Centre during business hours. Due to mask restrictions, no food can be consumed in the theatre this year.
Q: What is being done to keep me safe from COVID?
A: Perchance Theatre takes the safety of their company and audience very seriously. Working in conjunction with provincial public health departments, we are confident we have addressed all your concerns.
Q: What kind of seating is there? Can we bring our own chairs?
A: The seats are wooden bench-style in the round. Because of COVID restrictions we are unable to provide soft cushions to sit on so we highly encouraged you to bring your own cushions for extra padding! The seating will be assigned by bubble. We don't allow people to bring their own chairs unless they should need it for medical reasons, as we must maintain distancing in the pit area for the performance. There is a designated accessible seating area able to accommodate three wheelchairs.
Q: How do I get tickets?
A: Once tickets are available for the season, they must be purchased in person or by phone at the Cupids Legacy Centre 709-528-3501, or if tickets are still available, at the door. Because of socially distance seating and limited availability, tickets will not be available online this season.
We are operating at 50% capacity so to avoid disappointment we highly recommend purchasing in advance.
Matinee tickets are to be picked up at the Legacy Centre and evening performance tickets will be available 90 minutes before show time at the theatre.
Q: How much do tickets cost?

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 media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) two hours before the show. We also alert ticket holders know through our voicemail message, so if there is a question of weather please call our box office line at 709-771-2930. Those who had purchased tickets for that show date will be contacted to arrange either a refund, or moving the tickets to a different date.
