My dance troupe booked a show for September 18th in Dayton (it's a benefit show to raise money for charity) and the venue JUST told us last night that they're probably going to have to close down and thus they won't be available. We have less than three weeks to find a new place for the show. We're not expecting a huge crowd (125 people or so), and we'd only need it from 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM on Saturday the 18th.
Can ANYONE recommend a place that is available for that date, a place that would work for a dance show? It's a Halloween-themed show, so of course we'd like a place that had some kind of style or atmosphere but unfortunately we don't have a lot of money for the rental (our max price is $600 dollars or so).
ok...first....take a deep breath!
have you thought of maybe checking the HIGH SCHOOL? a lot of them now have amazing theatres and would love a donation to their theatrical department to use the facility. If there is not any alcohol involved, they are usually very willing. AND they have lighting and sound already in place! if there is an auction or anything, you can set this up in the hall way.
Again, if no alcohol is involved, you may find a church that would assist you with this event in exchange for a donation to their youth or mission programs. The donations are always negotiable and would replace the rental fees of a venue.
hope this helps!
