Here's the scenario, friends:
Spacey Spaciopolis owns a rockin' dance studio, but it's lonely a lot of the time. It's a shame to let it just sit there, and she knows she could make some extra loot by renting it out whenever she isn't Turkey Trotting in it herself, but she can’t pay for publicity (obviously). Plus she wouldn't know where to advertise it anyway, and she sure as Zeus doesn’t have time to design some spiffy ad, especially when she could be doing the Kangaroo Hop!
Across town, Thespis McThespian has been using the same black box for years to teach his "Find Your Voice Through Mime" classes, but the usurious landlord has just jacked up the rents, summarily ending McThespian's tenure. He's not familiar with the rental market any more (where's his phone book?), and every Google search he does just turns up porn theaters & Wikianswers pages.
Before Bay Area Performing Arts Spaces (BAPAS), the story might have ended here: a tragedy of the perfect match whose paths never cross.
But sometimes, all a match needs is a matchmaker. Behold: the Space Rental Lab at Theatre Bay Area's Annual Conference on April 14!
Do you want to advertise your space for rental, but never seem to get around to it? Need to find a cheaper, more convenient venue for your next performance? At the Space Rental Lab, you'll work with our crackerjack team from BAPAS, a searchable database of 467 performing arts spaces in 11 Bay Area counties. We match spaces with renters for free!
Stop in any time during the conference and Duck Waddle (real dance name) away with a complete, live, beautiful profile that's synced to your organization's calendar, highlighting your unbooked rental times. Or drop by to get a list of spaces that you didn't already know about and that meet your needs for your next rehearsal, audition, performance or self-help-through-mime seminar.
Already got a BAPAS profile? You rock. Visit our lab and we'll help you make your profile even more appealing to potential renters. We just made some of the site's most popular features free! More about that here.
If you're a theatre person of any stripe, you can't afford to not use this resource! Your match is out there waiting for you. Let us help you find it!
Oh, and you can register for the conference here. See you at the Space Rental Lab!
