Rent our Performance Spaces

The performance spaces at the Playhouse are available to rent for performances, meetings, or rehearsals -- even weddings and other life events!   There is always plenty of parking, and a comfortable lobby space for your attendees.  Rentals include use of tech booth, lighting and sound systems, as well as use of dressing rooms and green room on tech and performance/event days, and a piano or keyboard if needed.   The Main Stage and Cabaret are never rented out at the same time for performance.  

Come play with us!

The Main Stage

The Main Stage is a 119-seat theater with a 22 deep x 30 wide stage area and raked seating.  It includes a resilient/sprung floor and curtaining (front and mid legs, mid and rear travelers, front and rear border).  A rear RP screen is available for projection or lighting design, but can also be removed and replaced with the rear traveler.
