SPACES

This studio is our largest space with a 20’ ceiling, fully sprung hardwood floors, audio equipment, LED lighting, Upright Piano, optional string lighting, and mirrors with blackout drapes. Because this space has a support column located close to the center of the room, it is not recommended for sports activities. 

Our proscenium stage is located at the South end of the room. Additionally this room can be divided in half with a 9' blackout curtain. This allows for one side to be a 40' 40' studio and the other side a smaller theatre. We offer limited tables and chairs for a small rental fee. Capacity: 150-200 depending on configuration.

 

The Grand Oak stage is perfect for presentations, shows, recitals, fundraisers, weddings, and special events. There is an adjoining dressing room with mirrors and professional lighting.

Policies

Fine print that especially delights our lawyers

 

Evergreen SPACES is a shared multidisciplinary space. As such there is often noise cross-over from different Studios and the facility can be an active and busy place. We ask all SPACES users to be respectful of the groups around you. If a group requests a change in music levels please be respectful and work with the requesting group.

Evergreen works hard to create a fun and memorable atmosphere for all clients using the SPACES. Lighting and sound design choices in our common areas are carefully considered. We do not adjust these elements for any one group unless you have booked our entire facility and have arranged for exclusive use of the space. 

 

Evergreen Community SPACES is a privately owned facility. To ensure the safety of all our guests and our property, only clients or guest of clients are permitted. If you have a question about this policy or wish to arrange a tour please contact our office.
