While our students and their classes, rehearsals, productions and concerts often keep the CPA busy much of the year, we do occasionally rent our spaces out to campus or community organizations. We can also provide technical support and equipment, depending on your needs. There will be some cost, however each event is considered on an individual basis as no two events are exactly alike or present the same needs. Please contact the chairs of the Departments of Music and Theatre & Film for more information.
