    • Reception Capacity 70
    • Space Notes Full Stage Many groups have enjoyed the opportunity to produce their show on a professional theatre stage. DTC’s stage has been used for a wide range of events from plays and dance recitals to fashion shows to even a body building competition! Full stage rentals entitle the user to all of our available stage areas and two backstage dressing rooms. Each dressing room features ample mirrors surrounded by makeup lights and space for 8-10 people. Apron Rental Have you ever dreamed of performing a vocal recital or stand-up comedy routine? Do you need an intimate yet spacious location for your school’s graduation ceremony? An apron rental is ideal for events that require auditorium seating but do not necessitate a large stage area. This is also an excellent space for meeting lectures which require additional seating capacity beyond the gallery. The main drape is closed with the area in front of it available for use. The Rehearsal Hall Looking for a place to practice an upcoming recital or play? The Rehearsal Hall is a large open area with an elevated area the size of our stage, which was installed for dance practice for DTC’s own Broadway-bound musicals. The floor is made of say something better than just spiffy plywood. The Gallery/Lobby Area Ideal for social gatherings or small meetings. A kitchenette adjacent to the gallery is available for your use. Rental includes use of tables and chairs. Please contact Jillian Farley at 302-504-3394 or jfarley@delawaretheatre.org for more information on special packages.
