Rain Policy: In the event of bad weather, Shakespeare by the Sea's performances are held in The Park Place Theatre located in the bottom parking lot of Point Pleasant Park (5480 Point Pleasant Drive). The indoor/outdoor call is made two hours before the scheduled performance time and will be listed on our website and our social media pages. If the show is indoors and you have purchased a Sweet Seat Ticket in advance, your seat will be held at the Park Place Theatre until 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time, at which point the space will made available to the next audience member in line. If this takes place, you may contact our ticket retailer to have your tickets transferred to another performance in the future. Please plan to arrive early to avoid inconvenience.

Dog Policy: Point Pleasant is a dog-friendly park, and we are happy to welcome your pets to enjoy the show alongside your family. However, please be mindful that the location may be very noisy and filled with hundreds of people when considering whether or not to bring your dog. Please bring a leash, and be prepared to take your dog away from the show to calm it if necessary. We reserve the right to ask you and your dog to leave if it is becoming a nuisance or posing a threat to others.

Baby Policy: For outdoor shows, we allow lap seating with Sweet Seat Tickets for children under the age of four. Lap seating is not available in the Park Place Theatre due to our Fire Safety Code. Please be courteous to others and take your child outside of the theatre to calm it if necessary. We recommend sitting in a location where you may be able to enter/re-enter easily.
