Retreats & Residencies

Retreats can come with the use of the theatre or not. The length of stay can vary from a few days to as long as possible. Accommodations are located in the Good Eats which is the blue building next to the theatre, which has a large one bedroom apartment, a large bachelor and a small bachelor with a shared bathroom.  All units are self-contained.

Artist residencies are open to all artists and all disciplines and are based on availability. Submissions are taken on an
