Dodgy forecast stops performance

23:29, Feb 11 2013

Forecast rain has forced the cancellation of tonight's Shakespeare in the Park in Queens Park, Invercargill.

Venture Southland event producer Angela Newell said the wet weather plan organised last week would be initiated for people who missed out on a show.

SIT Centrestage Theatre in Don St had been booked to accommodate audience, she said.

Audience members who had their show cancelled between Tuesday and Friday could attend any other show or one of the rain-out contingency nights at SIT Centrestage on either Thursday or Friday at 6.30pm, Ms Newell said.

Indoor performances will also be held at the Invercargill Repertory Society on Saturday at 6.30pm and Sunday at 1.30pm if the wet weather persists.

Daily announcements will be made on whether shows in the park are going to go ahead.
