Deposit and Contract

A deposit is required to confirm rental—fifty percent of base rental fee, exclusive of staff charges, due at time of signed contract with the balance due no later than the day of the event.

It is the responsibility of the renter to restore the theater to the way it was found before the event. The NEYT building representative assigned to your event will help facilitate cleanup. Because of the difficulty in accessing the area under the audience seating in the theater, only water may be brought into the auditorium—NO FOOD OR SWEETENED BEVERAGES.

Renters are responsible for their own liability & property insurance during the rental period. A written copy of the user’s policy is required. NEYT accepts no liability for accidents, property loss or other events that are beyond their control during the rental period. The renter shall also have the New England Youth Theatre named as “additional insured” in their policy.

Student Employment
Trained and mentored NEYT students may be available as personnel (technical, box office, ushers, concessions) for nonprofit weekend and evening events at $15 per hour.

Kitchen and concession counter are available for renters to sell refreshments during events. NEYT reserves the right to provide & sell concessions at events if the renter does not.

Presenter is responsible for his/her own publicity, including posters, flyers, press releases, mailings, etc. Text on all promotional materials must be cleared with NEYT no later than three weeks prior to the event. NEYT must receive three posters/flyers at least two weeks before opening. Posters will be displayed in our lobby, NEYT will provide an event notice on our web site and the event will be listed on our marquee. Any advertising or other communications publicizing your event must not imply any endorsement or sponsorship by NEYT.

The New England Youth Theatre does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or age. Use of NEYT’s facilities by any individual, group or organization that espouses views in contradiction with this non-discrimination policy is prohibited.
