Private Performances

In addition to our regularly scheduled public performances, Oyster Mill Playhouse also presents up to five private performances for each of our productions.

Hosting a private performance can be accomplished in three easy steps:

1. Contact Oyster Mill Playhouse to see about the availability of a private performance for a particular show. The cost of a non-musical is $800, and the cost of a musical is $1200.

2. Once a date is agreed upon, all that is required is a deposit of $100 for a non-musical and $200 for a musical. The balance is due two weeks prior to the date of the private performance.

3. Now that you have tickets to our 91-seat house, it’s time to sell those tickets! The only rule is that you must sell them at our ticket prices ($25 for a non-musical and $30 for a musical) or higher. This can serve as a fundraiser for your organization. The only exception to this rule is if you give tickets away for free, as some organizations have done as a thank-you to their members.

When your organization sells out the house just by selling them at our base ticket prices, you make a profit of approximately $1500 for either a play or a musical — and have a good time while earning the money!

Your organization can choose to hold a reception in our main lobby before the show, during intermission, or after the performance. We do ask if the reception is being held during intermission, that the length be no longer than 20 minutes for the sake of our performers and the rhythm of the show. In addition, please notify the point of contact if you plan to have a reception.
