Metro Theatre has a 28-foot-wide stage and 310 seats in its auditorium. We also have a licensed bar and lounge. You can rent either or both whenever it’s not show time. As well, you can buy out the theatre for one of our shows and enjoy a private performance – this could be the fundraising opportunity you’ve been looking for!

You can rent the Metro Theatre daily during the summer, from June through mid-August. During the rest of the year, its availability depends on the production schedule.

You have the option of renting the entire stage and 308-seat auditorium, and/or our famous bar and lounge. Some details are below, but please send us a note via the contact form below or email the Co-Productions Committee at admin@metrotheatre.com if you have questions.
