Weekly & Multi-Week Rentals
Community rentals for full productions are often available with advanced scheduling ~~~ or sometimes last-minute! It all depends on availability.
Weekly rentals are scheduled on a Monday through Sunday schedule. Precedence will be given to rentals of 3 weeks or more. Weekly and multi-week rentals include near-exclusive* use of the space during the rental period. (*The rehearsal/performance schedule of weekly renters has first priority. Occasionally, however, non-intrusive community events may be hosted at times when the space would otherwise be unoccupied.)
The weekly rate is currently $1,000/week (as of May 2021). The rental includes standard seating, a rep lighting plot, and use of all of the theater's technical equipment. It includes venue orientation, and an assigned venue contact. It does not include any design or technical staff. The renter may hire 18th & Union recommended staff, if needed (and as available).
Short-Term, Event & Hourly Rentals During Non-Premium Times
Non-premium times = Weekdays. Weeknights. Friday and Saturday mornings/midday.
We often are able to offer hourly and per-evening rentals for our space.
- Standard lighting only (no stage lights): $15/hour, with a 3-hour ($45) minimum. An extra $15 charge may be applicable if you are a first time renter, to accommodate access and orientation.

- Use of stage lights and audio PLUS streaming interface/equipment: $50/hour with 4-hour minimum.
Each rental includes a brief orientation of the space and the tech equipment, as needed. Other than venue orientation, staffing is not covered in these rates. The renter is responsible for providing required staffing for their project. The renter may also hire 18th & Union recommended staff, if needed (and as available).
Short-Term, Event & Hourly Rentals During Premium Times
Premium times = Friday and Saturday afternoons/evenings.
Priority during premium times is given to co-presenters and longer-term renters, but we would love to host you if we have availability! Check our master calendar before inquiring about specific dates.
