RENTAL SUBSIDY GRANT PROGRAM

As part of our impact and access goals, the Orpheum Theatre Group has implemented a Rental Subsidy
Grant program to make the Halloran Centre and Orpheum Theatre available to community arts groups
at reduced rental fees.


The Rental Subsidy review & award process

The rental subsidy program is administered by the Orpheum Theatre Group and an independent panel
consisting of community volunteers.

There is a multi-step application process, and all documents must be complete for consideration:

When filling out the application, please be prepared to provide a written description of the event.
Applications may be submitted for either Halloran Centre or Orpheum Theatre spaces. Blackout dates
are October – December. Dates between January and September must be mutually agreeable.
