EXPLORING SPACES: THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING A VENUE

Genre: Other
Theater Resources Unlimited / Back Stage Industry Panel

The panel will be an honest look at what works and what doesn't work in certain venues and the questions you need to ask before deciding if a theater is right for your production:
• What audience capacity do you need for the Equity contract you are using?
• Is sound and lighting included? Does your show require wing area or height?
• What insurance are you responsible for? Are there any additional expenses besides the basic rent?
• Does the space work simply for your concept, and did you remember to ask your director and designers before booking it? One size does NOT fit all.
