Payments & Cancellations
A refundable reservation deposit, signed contract, and policy form are required to secure your reservation.
Rental fees must be paid 120 days prior to reserved date. Non payment of rents by the 120th day will result in the forfeiture of dates and deposit.
The deposit minus a cancellation fee will be refunded for cancellations more than 120 days from the reserved date. For cancellations less than 120 days from the reserved date, only the deposit will be refunded minus the cancellation fee. Cancellations must be made in writing.
Weekly Rate Rentals
The weekly rate is intended to encompass the portions of a seven-day consecutive period, inclusive of rehearsal time and use of space to store props and sets between shows.
Weekly rate will be prorated if one of the seven consecutive days is not available due to a holiday or other one day booking. Theater must be left empty on the day it’s not available.
Threshold for triggering weekly rate: rental group wishes to retain their props/sets/lights/sound system on the premises between shows. The theater will not be rented to any other users during this time.
