Facility & Rentals

Rentals are available for performances and studio use. A keyholder is required to access and lock up the facility for rentals outside business hours. Recurring or longer-term renters with an established relationship can request the training to have this fee waived.

A technician is required for any technical elements in the Performance Hall beyond basic audio playback and work lights. Renters are welcome to bring their own technician. Guest technicians must be approved by our Production Manager in order to handle College equipment.  Keyholder and College technician rates are $35/hr.

Renters using the College as a performance space are responsible for providing their own box office and/or front of house personnel and equipment. 

A Capital Improvement Fee of $0.50/per person will be charged for groups numbering more than 15 people to account for utilities and wear and tear on the facility. All renters must provide a proof of liability insurance (minimum $2 million) before the rental use showing the Canadian Heritage Arts Society (owner of CCPA), St. Mary’s Church, and Anglican Church of Canada as named insured.

To request to rent one of our spaces, please fill out our rental request form. For further information, please contact us at rentals@ccpacanada.com or 250 595 9970.

Availability

Longer-term rentals for studios and the Performance Hall rentals can be accomodated between May and August. Availability is limited to select evenings and weekend days during the school year, as College spaces are in high demand from September to April.

Rental Support

Professional and emerging artists and groups can apply to partner with the College for increased support through donated space, or greater discounts on rental fees. Contact the Managing Artistic Director at 250 595 9970 or director@ccpacanada.com to apply.

The College makes our props and costumes available to established and emerging artists and arts organizations. We will not rent to private groups (costume parties, wedding receptions, etc.). Professional companies, community groups, emerging artists, and registered charities are eligible for discounts to rental fees, or a waiver of the rental fee in favour of in-kind support. Please contact the Production Manager at production@ccpacanada.com for information on the rental pricing structure or to book a time to view items.

Pull and restock fees are set at $20.00 per hour, charged in 15 minute increments (during business hours).

Some equipment requires a certain level of skill, and renters will be asked to demonstrate their ability to operate the equipment. Some prop and costume pieces are not available for rental. Rentals may not be available during the week prior to, as well as the week following, a production. The College reserves the right to refuse rentals.
