Dog Story Theater

7 Jefferson Ave SE Grand Rapids, MI
Max Capacity: 100 people
Dog Story Theater is the newest black box theater in downtown Grand Rapids. Our goal is to provide performing artists of all stripes the opportunity to make money from their work; we offer box office management, online ticket sales, equipment use, technical consultation, program printing, and much more at no extra cost, all at rental rates that you'll find nowhere else in town (generally, if you can draw 15 patrons a night, you're going to walk out of the production with cash in hand). To top it all off, the Theater is a BYOB facility and our adult patrons are encouraged to bring their adult beverages. Dog Story Theater is a beautiful, custom-built 1,200 sq. ft. venue with a patron capacity of 50 - 100 (depending on configuration) and is ideal for plays, live music, films, dance, comedy and multimedia events. The theater is also available for wedding receptions, presentations, lectures, meetings, photo shoots and pretty much any event that requires a big room, lots of chairs, or theatrical lighting. The theater is a non-profit organization made up of long-time Grand Rapids entertainment veterans who are well-connected with the artistic community. Even if Dog Story turns out not to be the right fit, we'll work with you to find the ideal venue for your production. We want to hear about your event!
