Now that you've found your actors and finalized the script it's time to look for a rehearsal venue
. Or maybe you're planning an orchestral performance for a world tour starting in Texas? Regardless of the performance type, you'll find that Dallas has more than its fair share of professional venues to consider.
Theater rental spaces come in a wide range of sizes, from small theaters with stages meant for a handful of people. School recitals, solo singers, and poetry recitals often take place here. All you need is good lighting, a stage, and a microphone. For a dance performance or play where there are many people on stage and large props to set up, you'll be looking for a theater with a bigger stage. Or even an auditorium space, many of which are historic buildings that have seen thousands of performances in their lifetimes.
When searching for your next theater venue you should consider what amenities are on hand. Changing rooms, sound dampening, costume rentals, accessory lighting, seating for the audience… Not to mention externals like bathrooms, wireless internet, and access to parking. Always scout out your venue beforehand. Booking a theater is a big commitment and it won't pay to realize after you've committed that your chosen venue lacks a critical amenity. Taking a tour beforehand also allows you to visualize the performance, get a feel for the space, and see for yourself what the audience will experience.
Are you looking to host a private event with a screening, such as a graduation party, a surprise marriage proposal
, or an anniversary? You can also rent a movie theater in Dallas all to yourselves. Private screening events give your group the luxury of an entire theater. Rental theaters are ideal for movie marathons, showing newly created independent films, and other events.
Intimate theater venues in Dallas also include spaces with stages where live performers put on a show. For a smaller audience you're better off choosing a venue to match. Intimate theaters cost less to rehearse and perform in compared to a large venue. They are easier to furnish and have flexible time periods for rental since it's easy to set up and break down between performances. Besides traditional theaters and auditoriums you can also find intimate theaters at acting colleges, dance schools, and even public schools that rent out space for small performances!
