Rent with Us
18th & Union co-presents solo and other portable performances for much of the year. Community rentals for full productions are available at other times. These are offered on a weekly basis, and include near-exclusive* use of the space during each rental period.
Weekly rentals are scheduled Monday through Sunday. Precedence will be given to rentals of 3 weeks or more. The all-inclusive cost through August 31, 2020 is $1,000/week. The rental includes standard seating, a rep lighting plot, and use of all of the theater's technical equipment.

* During weekly rentals, the renter's rehearsal and performance schedules have first priority. However, the space's lobby is sometimes used for community events at times when the space would otherwise be unoccupied.
We offer hourly and per-evening rentals for our space at the following rates:
Private events** with no bar service that only use work lights: $10/hour with 4-hour minimum.
Private events with no bar service that use stage lights and audio equipment: $20/hour with 4-hour minimum.
Public events***, or private events with bar service: $200 for an event lasting up to 4 hours, plus $20/hour for additional time.
Short rentals usually aren't available on Friday and Saturday nights, but there are exceptions. Check our master calendar for availability before inquiring about specific dates.
For more information about rentals, please email pd (at) 18thandunion (dot) org.
** An event is considered private if attendance is by invitation only, it isn't advertised to the public (including Facebook events), and tickets aren't distributed through a public platform.
*** For public events and for private events with bar service, we staff the concessions bar and provide front-of-house management. We'll give you a tour of the tech equipment and help you set up the space at the beginning of the rental. You'll provide a stage manager to run the event and will be responsible for selling / distributing your tickets.
