Theatre Rental

Woodland Theatre is used by many groups, both local and regional, to bring various programs to this rural area.

Some groups just need the theater and the work lights.  Others need stage lighting.
It has become necessary to publish these rental policies so that everyone is treated equally
and the theater equipment is protected from those who don't know how to use it.


Mission Statement

    The mission of Woodland Productions is to enable and present high quality performances in the musical and theatre arts; provide cultural enrichment, educational experiences and performance opportunities for all ages; and preserve and enhance the historic Woodland Theatre.

Prior to development of a Lease Agreement, detailed information regarding the event must be submitted to the Booking Agent.  If the event is approved by Woodland Productions, a Lease Agreement will be developed.  Once a rental deposit in the amount of 50% of the total cost of the rental, up to a maximum of $500, is received, the Lease Agreement will be signed by all parties and the reservation will be confirmed;

Payment in full of the rental fee must be received by Lessor no later than 14 days  prior to the event.  Cancellation of the rental agreement by either Lessor or Lessee for any reason may and must occur no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled event date.
