LOW VOLUME PERFORMANCE THEATERS AND SEATED LISTENING ROOMS
Magic, Comedy, Film, Lectures, Spoken Word, Performance Art, Live Podcast Recordings, Literary Events, Pop-Up Theater, Circus Arts, and ALL genres of music that can be performed at a lower volume (Americana, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul, Rock, Singer-Songwriter, Latin, Experimental, Classical, World, and more) find sanctuary at The Lost Church.
- Evening Shows run 8:15-10:30pm with an intermission (doors at 7:30pm). Matinee Shows run 2:45pm-5:00pm with an intermission (Doors at 2pm). Load-in and sound check is 1 hour before doors open. Simplicity is best with our lean timeline and business model.
- Theater and other theatrical acts, lectures, comedy, literary events and other non-musical performances are generally 2 hours with a 15-20 minute intermission.
- Music: We are a two set format. Double Bills or Solo Songwriters In-the-round (we respectfully request no triple bills, please). Our stages can accommodate only 1-10 performers combined per show — 1-6 performers is ideal.
- We can accommodate electric instruments played at an acoustic volume. Minimal drum kits and percussion are welcome with use of brushes. Amps are ideally 25 watts or less.
- We provide a 7-channel PA, BOSE Speaker/Monitor Stand, 5 mics and 3 DI boxes, our in-house ticketing service and pr department, and a Host to run sound, introduce you, and shepherd everyone through the event.
- Since our programming is very diverse and because we are not a bar, restaurant or strictly a music venue — we don’t have a built-in audience and are almost entirely artist draw dependent.
- We support the performances with promotions in our weekly newsletter of 4600+ subscribers called Lost Church Bulletin, on our station Lost Church Free Radio, on Print Posters and Handbills, on our Social Media Pages, and with Paid Advertising, but attendance is still 95% Performer driven.
- We have a 3-week before and after Radius Clause for any shows in the area that would affect attendance.
- We offer a Door Deal (no guarantees at this time).
- Attendance Goal is 50-75
