Please note that for our 2021 Summer Season, capacity will be limited to less than 50 percent. This ensures we can keep parties socially distanced on the lawn. In all lawn areas of the Samuell-Grand, guests are expected to honor the following arrangement: blankets closest to the front, sand chairs in the middle, high back chairs in the back (a sand chair is a short lawn chair with a back that is 16 inches or less, a high back chair is a chair with a back that is 16 inches or higher). The middle section of the lawn is reserved specifically for Shakespeare Dallas members and Benefactors. General admission seating is located on either side of the lawn. Special groups are provided with reserved seating either in the Sherry W. Shannon Pavilion or in the general admission section of the lawn. Pavilion seating is available only at our Samuell-Grand location. All guests are encouraged strongly to be considerate of those around them by looking to make sure a fellow audience member’s view is not blocked by a high-back chair. For audience comfort and convenience, Shakespeare Dallas offers sand chairs for rent at $5 each or 2 for $8.
All shows taking place at the Moody Performance Hall, Members receive 1/2 off tickets for general admission seating. Premium seating is also available for an additional cost. Premium seating is located in the orchestra center, rows D-K and row N.

Shakespeare Dallas has a strict no refund policy, except for the over-charging of goods and services (for example, purchasing 2 tickets and being charged for 4). In the event of a weather-related cancellation of a show, rain checks are issued so that our patrons may have every opportunity to see another performance. Refunds may only be issued for show cancellations during the last weekend of performances.
While it is usually sunny and breezy at the park, weather conditions in North Texas can change rapidly. No performance will be cancelled due to weather prior to show time.

Our social media pages will be updated with the most recent information available on cancellations.
