We have hosted plays, musicals, dance, music, opera, film, classes, rehearsals, art openings, parties, avant-garde, and more. We present productions under our own name, we can co-produce, and we accept rental submissions produced entirely by an outside company. Talk to us about your project and help us realize your creative vision.

Tickets are not mailed; we will hold your tickets at the Box Office to be picked up (1) hour before performance. Please bring either your ID, print-out or receipt, or order number to pick up tickets. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the performance.
For SOME productions, reservations can be made (ie - Your seats will be held so you may purchase at-door). We ask that you arrive at the theatre 15 minutes before performances to purchase or your seats may be forfeited.
House opens approximately 20 minutes before show time. Please let the box office know ahead of time if you wish to reserve specific seats or if you have any mobility problems so that we may assist you. The Secret Theatre has a ramp and is wheelchair accessible. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME PRODUCTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LATE SEATING. Check ticketing site for details of each production.
