The Fools perform under the open sky and weather does affect our show. Torrential downpours or thunder and lightning may cause us to cancel a performance. However, our show will only be cancelled if it is raining at 7pm with no sign of stopping. If it rains all day and stops at 6:50 pm the show will go on! If it starts raining during the show we may hold for 10 minutes to see if it blows over. If it continues to rain, we may cancel the show.
Due to the physical nature of Fools’ shows it can be unsafe to perform on the slippery wet ground. We have found that our audiences are a hardy lot and come prepared with rain gear and umbrellas and will happily sit through some light precipitation to see us perform. We are happy to perform under such conditions – especially if the audience is a generous one and rewards our efforts with a little extra cash in the hat!
