Some of our plays contain material unsuitable for children.

PHOTO POLICY

Photos are not permitted during the performance.

PLEASE BE ON TIME

Unlike other theatres, we don’t hold the curtain. We start on time every time. Latecomers are not guaranteed their purchased seats and will be seated at the discretion of the house manager.

SEVERE WEATHER POLICY

Performances continue as scheduled unless we experience a loss of power or extremely dangerous conditions at the Blackfriars Playhouse. For outdoor performances, there is no covering for audiences. We will contact you via email if changes are made to your performance due to inclement weather.

For patrons who cannot travel safely, we waive our standard exchange fee and gladly issue replacement tickets for another performance of the same play, pending availability.

Please contact the Box Office within 24 hours after your missed show to make arrangements.

Weather policy for outdoor performances

We will make every effort to continue on in light rain. If there is heavy rainfall or lighting we will cancel the show. You will receive an email from  our Box Office announcing the cancellation and your options on what to do with your tickets. We do our best to balance the safety of our actors,    patrons, and staff with trying to deliver the promised performance. Virginia weather is notoriously fickle so we are not always able to make a call early, if you have concerns about travel and potential weather, we encourage you to reach out to our Box Office to discuss options.
