House MGMT.  +  TECH. DIRECTOR

Our house managers help you set up our risers and chairs, stock and staff the bar, manage your front-of-house and take care of the line at the door. They act as your ambassadors to our space and are trained to help make your experience as a producer stress-free!

Our Technical Director is your key to realizing your vision for our space. The Technical Director assists you in designing customized lighting, utilizing our sound equipment and navigating all other technical needs to make your production dreams a reality.
