Hire Details- Theater & Comedy
Our policy is to put on new quality Theatre, and we have a strong leaning towards new writing and comedy. We are a company of actors looking to work with inspiring artists interested in producing excellent work. We read all scripts sent to us by potential companies and then they are approved by the artistic director. Comedy submissions are also accepted, we will need some evidence of past work, reviews, actors involved or marketing plans to support all your ideas.
For theatre shows we usually put on one – three week runs, but we are willing to listen to individual situations as we are open to suggestions and will try to accommodate your needs. Our Play week runs from Tuesday to Saturday with the possibility of Saturday Matinee’s. Comedy is more flexible with our specific comedy times being two slots on the evenings of Sunday and Monday. The 9.30 slots are usually comedy.
The Theatre playing area is 4.5m wide by 5.5m deep with a height of 2.75m, it is a black box square studio space and accommodates fifty-four people in raked individual seats. It has a large black curtain that can be hung for storage of sets for theatre shows or to create entrances on either side of the stage.
The Dressing Room is a generous space with hanging rail, sink and separate WC. It is equipped with a kettle, iron & board and a full mirrored dressing area for make up and hair. Two entrances lead directly from the dressing room onto the stage.
The Box Office is staffed every day for the run. We split the evening into two slots: 7.00 – 9.00pm and 9.30 – 10.30pm. A deposit is held when contracts are exchanged and then after the run the balance is settled. We supply a full revenue breakdown for your direct and online ticket sales.
You will need to supply your own competent Technician for your show. You will also need to supply an usher for each performance of your show.
We have access to email address for press and listing magazines, however every company will need to be responsible for their own marketing and press strategy, we can help.
Publicity material can be displayed (Photos, posters, Reviews) on the box office and also on the boards outside the venue. We produce a monthly poster displaying all the events. We also have a substantial mailing list with a subscription of over 3000.
