Book Our Spaces

.

Facilities:

Our performing arts facilities include the Kendall Main Stage Theater, the Don Evans Black Box Theater, and the Mildred & Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall.


Season Planning:

All groups presented by TCNJ Center for the Arts must have dates secured, contracts signed, and equipment, space and ticketing needs detailed and approved by the Director of Operations of CFA by June 1st of the preceding performance season.

Without a signed contract, TCNJ Center for the Arts reserves the right to book tentatively held spaces to other clients.


External Clients:

Use of the performing arts facilities by individuals or groups affiliated with the College is scheduled by the Rachel Wolf in the Office of Community Relations and Special Campus Events. If you would like to tour the performance facility before engaging in more formal booking discussions, Rachel can schedule an appointment for you to do so.

When you are ready to book a space, Rachel will check availability, technical requirements and scheduling criteria and place a ‘hold’ on the date if the event meets the requirements. An initial production meeting will then be scheduled with the client, the venue Coordinator, and possibly the Director of Arts Facilities. Details such as the performance and rehearsal schedule, technical requirements, staffing requirements, and front-of house concerns such as ushering, ticketing, and security will be discussed as well as any catering needs, additional tables required, parking arrangements, signage, etc. The results of the production meeting form the basis of the usage and rental contract. Please note that events should not be advertised or promoted and tickets should not be sold until the contract is finalized. In addition, all changes must be added to the contract and a detailed production schedule must be submitted no less than two weeks prior to the event.
