Standard configuration includes stock lighting, sound, drapery and seating for 155 with balcony.  Basic theatre rental includes the main performance space, two dressing rooms, green room, 750 sq ft storage/warmup studio, and shared lobby.  The shared loading dock is at truck height and provides direct access to the theatre.
