Inquiries for Rehearsal Space

Seattle has grown significantly in population and scale in the past few years. The city is changing around us each day and open space is becoming more difficult to find. On the Boards is developing a series of new initiatives and new organizational practices to respond to these changes. These structural changes are rooted in a reevaluation of our mission and values, deepening our support for Seattle's artistic community, becoming an incubator for more art in Seattle, and providing greater transparency about our institutional practices.


Rehearsal Space

Rehearsal space will not be available through at least May 4th in compliance with the state's Stay-at-Home order.  After the 4th, we'll re-evaluate the situation based on recommendations from Governor Jay Inslee around what is deemed safe and responsible.  The leadership at On the Boards takes COVID-19 very seriously.  We care deeply about our community and encourage you to protect yourselves and the people around you.  

While rehearsals are considered non-essential, live streaming events are on the list of essential activities.  If you have a live streaming project that would benefit from space usage at On the Boards, please follow the Request Rehearsal Space link below and tell us about your idea. 

Our spaces are open to be used as rehearsal space throughout the year. Below is a form that you can fill out to reserve rehearsal. We will do our best to respond within a timely manner (7 days). Please note that requests by artists participating in the current season, festivals, Performance Labs and Artists-in-Residence are given priority before artist community requests.  

The community rate for the Studio Theater is $15/hr. Space is confirmed once we receive payment.  We would prefer that artists pay by check, noting REHEARSAL RENTAL in the memo line.
