Rentals

We welcome rentals at YPT and have a variety of venues to suit your production needs.


The Mainstage (Susan Rubes) Theatre

The Mainstage (Susan Rubes) Theatre is a 460-seat, proscenium-style theatre with a raised, sprung, masonite stage floor and a full complement of theatrical lights, sound and draperies to suit almost any theatrical production. All types of shows have come through our space, including theatre festivals, dance recitals, showcases and corporate meetings. Our core rental season for the Mainstage is from mid-May until the end of June.

The Studio (Nathan Cohen) Theatre

The Studio (Nathan Cohen) Theatre is an 115-seat, black box style studio. This room is used as both a rehearsal hall and a theatre. It comes with a small lighting and sound system and pull-out bleacher seating for 115 kids or 90 adults. This room is available throughout the year in and around our programming. We do, however, use our Studio every Saturday (daytime) for our own YPT Drama School.
