Rent Our Theatre

Factory Theatre’s unique heritage spaces are conveniently located at the corner of Adelaide and Bathurst. Outside of our regular season productions, our spaces are also available for independent theatre productions, special events, corporate gatherings and film shoots.

As Factory’s mandate is to produce and develop Canadian theatre, we prioritize requests from companies looking to produce Canadian plays.  However, if you are looking for a venue to rehearse your production, there is no stipulation that it be Canadian.

We offer sliding scale rates for corporate, commercial, charitable or non-profit organizations, and film and television productions.

To inquire about renting any of our venues or to schedule a walk-through please complete our rental inquiry form below.

Our Mainspace theatre seats up to 200 in a two-tier fixed traditional proscenium seating configuration. The Mainspace is used primarily for Factory productions from mid-September to mid-June, with limited availability during this time. However, we often provide the space to rental clients in the early fall, mid-December and summer months. Mainspace rentals include use of the theatre, greenrooms, lobby and lounge areas.

Both weekly rentals (Monday to Sunday) and daily rentals (up to 12 hours/day) include front-of-house (ushers, bar staff) and box office services. Rentals also include 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day of Mainspace Technical Director service.

The Mainspace does not have a house lighting plot. Therefore, we ask all guest productions and events to provide a lighting design that our technicians then install.
