Patrons are more than welcome to bring outside food. You may also arrange for a pre-show food delivery with DoorDash or UberEats. We are not responsible for locating you in the audience if your food is delivered after the show begins.
We're also BYOB! Adults 21+ may bring beer and wine to the park. Please note, however, that we do not permit the consumption of hard liquor on our property.
For the safety and comfort of all visitors, pets are not allowed in the park. Only working service animals assisting their owners will be admitted. If you have a well-behaved dog who loves Shakespeare, we allow canine patrons on select evenings. Please check our social media pages for announcements on Bark in the Park nights!

Wheelchair and Accessibility
We have ADA compliant seating at the Samuell-Grand. Please see a staff member or volunteer if you need help determining the best route for a wheelchair.
Refunds and Exchanges
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). Our tickets are flexible, so you're always able to use the ticket you've purchased for another night. 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 canceled due to weather prior to show time. The decision to delay or cancel a performance is made at curtain/ start time nightly (8:45pm for summer performances, 8:00pm for fall performances). Our social media pages will be updated with the most recent information available on cancellations.
