7 Stages houses two performance venues, a 200 seat Mainstage and a 90 seat Black Box. Both venues consist of stadium style seating with the stage as the floor of the room and are available for year round rentals of all types. 7 Stages typically rents both its facilities by the week, Monday through Sunday, with rates including the space and the equipment (labor not included). Rates vary based on season, availability, non-profit status, and mission fit. Daily rentals can sometimes be arranged under special circumstances such as dark nights. Friday or Saturday daily rentals are extremely rare but are possible if the requested date is within 6 weeks of inquiry and the space is available. Please view the information below for technical details and lists of included equipment.
The Mainstage has 157 fixed seats with additional seating to accommodate 200. Rates range from $4,000-$6,000 for the week. Labor not included.
The Black Box
The Black Box utilizes re-configurable seating in true black box style and while the maximum is 90, this creates a very small playing space. Rates range from $2,000-$4,000 for the week. Labor not included.
