Have a Seat! Join us for our February 2020 Open Houses!

16 min read

It’s early January. The new year, chock-full of excitement and potential, is just getting under way. Companies are starting work on their spring productions. Fringe producers are already touring (and booking!) spaces. Many of them have similar issues:

They need space. Audition space in Los Angeles, Rehearsal space in Los Angeles. Even a theatre rental in Los Angeles. And they need it now.

If you’re one of those producers, good news! We got you, fam.

If you haven’t checked out studio/stage, The Arena Stage or the new facility on Highland Ave. that’s home to Howard Fine Acting Studio, you’re in luck! We’re hosting a series of Open Houses in February, and we’d love to have you come by!

The StageCrafts February 2020 Open House Schedule

studio/stage – February 8th, 2-5pm
520 N. Western Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90004

First up is our mid-tier Los Angeles theatre rental venue – the tricked-out 41-seat intimate theatre venue with our signature white cyc. The venue boasts a HD projector, a dozen broad-spectrum LED pars and 5.1 surround sound. It’s suitable for most small theatre productions, film shoots, classes, workshops, readings, and more!

Jenn and I will be hanging out at studio/stage on Saturday, February 8th from 2pm to 5pm. There’ll be music, I’ll be projecting video games on the cyc (if Jenn lets me), and I may even fire up the grill out back for some snacks. Come on by, grab a drink from the cooler, take a personalized tour, and tell us all about what you’re working on!

Howard Fine Acting Studio – February 22nd, 2-5pm
1320 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90028

Next up is our newest partner venue, Howard Fine Acting Studio. We’ll be hanging out here on Saturday, February 22nd from 2-5pm, probably munching on something tasty from Fat Sal’s next door. Come in and say hi! We’ll be happy to show you around this lovely classroom space, suitable for rehearsals, workshops, readings, and more!

The Arena Stage – February 23rd, 2-5pm
1625 N. Las Palmas Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90028

Finally, our biggest space, The Arena Stage! This 99-seat monster proscenium sits at the corner of Highland and Las Palmas, right behind the world-famous Egyptian Theater. Besides its large capacity, this lovely Los Angeles theatre rental boasts a newly-revamped light grid and sound system. Jenn and I will be hanging out on Sunday afternoon in the freshly-remodeled lobby, and we’d really enjoy your company! This space is great for productions of all sizes, and is an excellent rehearsal space for large-cast productions. Also, there’s a (paid) parking lot! Only $5 for three hours with validation!

Get to know our Los Angeles theatre rental spaces!

Whether you’re looking for space for productions year-round or a space for this year’s Fringe, it’s a good idea to come see the spaces in February, as we’re already filling up quickly for 2020. But if you can’t, fear not. We’ll be hosting more open houses throughout the year.

If group events on weekend afternoons aren’t your thing, no problem! You can also e-mail us to schedule a private tour. 

If you’re not in town, or just don’t like meeting people in person, that’s totally cool too! We’re going to start posting brand new, updated tour videos of each space here on our blog starting next week! We want your venue shopping experience to be simple, easy, and done on your terms.

Want to make sure you don’t miss out on our upcoming open houses, tour videos, or other big news?

As the year draws to a close, Jenn and I have spent the last few weeks performing together at studio/stage in Theatre Unleashed‘s annual holiday show, It’s a Wonderful Life: The Radio Play. We’ve also spent a lot of time reflecting on the events of the year past, and planning the future of our venues.

“Gregory was awesome to book with! Great people! Great space! It was super nice and looks amazing. Very good lighting and light settings, and stage design. We’ll be back to use studio/stage again!”
