Each day of the Festival, RSF moves forward toward the planned evening performance.  

In the event of a heavy rain, we  will cancel the show.. However, we will probably wait until 5pm to do that.  

Anyone who has purchased a table for the evening, and a show is cancelled due to weather, they will be able to move their table to the night of their choice.
