Strawdog Theatre Company's 70 seat blackbox theatre is available to rent for weekend, daytime, late-night and off-night performances, subject to scheduling. We also have spaces available for daytime and evening rehearsals. Additional details below but if you have further question please contact our General Manager Mike Mroch for details & availability.
Strawdog Theatre is a Not-for-Profit Organization, with our home at the highly-trafficked borders of Lakeview, Wrigleyville & Uptown. Located on Broadway (3829 North, to be exact) between Sheridan & Grace (2 blocks South of Irving Park).
In our MainStage, (a 70 seat, fully insured, totally licensed Public Place of Amusement with basic lights & sound) we produce up to four productions a year. The 1500 square foot Main Stage features a 24' X 20' primary playing space & another ancillary 15' X 15' playable area between the risers.
In August 2006, we renovated the mainstage space & installed new risers to accomodate our new seats resulting in a more comfortable expirence and an increase in sellable tickets (totalling up to 80).
In Hugen Hall, our beautiful 40' X 20' exposed brick Cabaret styled space, we facilitate daytime rehearsals, weekend classes & other private events such as workshops, meetings & readings…it even has a piano! This space is also perfect for late night small productions.
For production & performances we provide utilities,lighting instruments & limited sound equipment, (even stock flats, platforms & other resources when available), & of course the simple basics such as a comfortable lobby & clean restrooms.
We also hold a liquor license & installed a bar that we may operate prior to performances and at intermissions.
All rentals are required to provide thier own House Manager and Box Office personnel. Basic Box Office services (for an additional fee) maybe negotiated at the time of the rental agreement.
All dates are subject to change due to conflicts and availaibity - please confirm with the rental agent before making any plans.
Strawdog Theatre Co. also has a very open schedule for rental for late nights, daytime performances and rehearsals.
