How to Rent The Granada Theatre

1. Availability

Please call the administrative office at 805-899-3000, and ask for the Contracts & Administration Manager. She can check the venue calendar to see if the date of your proposed event is available. If it is, she can put a hold on the calendar for you.

2. Estimate

After a date is on hold, you will be given a form to fill out regarding your performance details. When you have returned this form and have also provided a show rider, the Production Manager will discuss the performance with you. Then he can create an estimate of the costs.

3. Contract

Once you have approved the estimate, a contract can be created. You will have two weeks to return the signed contract with a deposit (the facility rental fee).

4. Ticketing

Once the deposit and signed contract are in hand, the box office can start building the show in the ticketing system. They need ten days to create this. Please keep this in mind when looking at on-sale dates, including any pre-sale/fan club dates. Tickets go on sale once the show is built in the system on the agreed date. Reports and ticketing information will come from our Box Office Management Team.

5. Insurance

One month prior to performance, a certificate of insurance is needed. This can be sent to the Contracts Manager.

6. Advance

Two to four weeks prior to the performance, the Front of House Manager will contact show staff to set up specific front of house needs including VIP events and merchandising. The Production Manager will contact show technical staff for stage specifics.

7. Performance

On the night of show, the box office, front of house, facilities, and production staff are present to make the performance a success.

8. Settlement

The Performance Accountant will do the settlement on the show, which will be completed within five working days after the performance. She will send a settlement statement to you, and once it is returned signed, any monies due you will be sent out by check.
