In the event that schools are cancelled due to inclement weather or should LWT cancel a performance due to inclement weather, LWT will make it a priority to work with each Student Group to ensure students are able to participate fully in the Student Theatre Series. First, LWT will exchange the tickets to another performance of the same production, subject to availability. If tickets are not available for the same production, LWT will exchange tickets to another performance in the Student Matinee Series, again subject to availability.
