Inclement Weather policy

It is our desire to complete every performance, and we will make every effort to start, continue, and finish each show despite light rainfall or breezy conditions.


In the event of heavy rains or winds, however, we may delay the start of the show, or the completion of the show, in the hope that the weather will clear. Announcements will be made informing audience members of "holds." We may also pause to take precautions to ensure the safety and health of the performers and crew, as well as members of the audience.


The Swan Theatre at Wyuka Stables provides ample room for all to avoid the rain. Most of the performance and seating areas, however, are open-air.


If severe storms are likely or imminent, shows may be cancelled beforehand. To find out if a show is cancelled prior to showtime, please check our Facebook page. You can also call for information during the afternoon of a performance date at 402-319-2895.


Tickets for cancelled shows can be exchanged for another performance, depending on availability.
