Venue Rental

The Crane Theater is mainly available for rentals on a weekly basis for performance use. We also are available for meetings, parties, film screenings, lectures...the possibilities are endless. Curious if your event will work in our space? Just drop us a line to find out.

We do NOT have dedicated rehearsal space. The LGM Studio may occasionally be available for rehearsal rentals if there are holes in the calendar.

For events, we do NOT have a catering kitchen or foodservice capabilities (we have a fridge and a coffee pot, but currently no cooking facilities).

The Crane has two separate performance spaces that can operate simultaneously, with shared lobby space and restrooms.

Single day event rental rate varies between $300-$1200 depending on type of event, use of Mainstage, LGM Studio, or both, staffing needs, etc. Contact us for an exact estimate.

Rentals do NOT include:

  • Access to scene shop area or tools
  • Paint
  • Consumables such as tape, gel, etc
  • Stock set pieces
  • Costumes
  • Props

Rental of set pieces, props, or costumes may be available by separate arrangement. All renters are expected to provide their own tools and supplies.

The Crane does NOT provide Front of House or Technical staff. Renters are expected to bring their own staff, technicians, designers, etc, but must demonstrate that all individuals are properly trained in the use of specific equipment. Any technical training by Crane staff beyond basic orientation is charged at an hourly rate. Damage to any Crane equipment will be the sole responsibility of renters.
