Scheduling Procedures


In order to hold a specific date(s), producers are required to submit a completed Rental Application and deposit.

Producers will be sent a Rental Application; this application should be completed and returned with the rental deposit within ten (10) days. If the completed application and deposit are not received within ten (10) days at the Marin Center office, the dates will be released without notice.

There is a non-refundable deposit of the entire rental fee for the Manzanita Room and Friends of Marin Center Conference Room.

The Director may require additional deposit monies when extraordinary janitorial services or damages to the facility are a possibility. The Director may deny the scheduling of events when, in her opinion, the event may have the potential to cause cancellation of other events due to excessive cleaning or repair time.

License Agreement

A License Agreement, which the producer signs prior to their event, authorizes use of the Marin Center facilities.

Unless booked on short notice, license agreements are ordinarily sent one hundred twenty (120) days before the event date. License agreements and base rental payments are returned within ten (10) days after receipt of the agreement. If not returned by that date, the event is subject to cancellation without notice. Additional expenses (equipment rental, International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees I.A.T.S.E. stagehands rates, Marin Center Box Office, ushers, labor and clean-up fees, etc.) are deducted at the time of Box Office settlement, or billed to the producer following the event.

The Director reserves the right to require the base rental payment and all expense monies from a producer:

  • New, first-time producers of the Marin Center facilities may be required to pay all expense monies (box office, stagehand, ushers, etc.) at the time of receipt of the License Agreement.
  • If sufficient monies are not held by the Marin Center Box Office to pay all expense monies (box office, stagehands, ushers, etc.) fifteen (15) business days prior to the event date for ticketed events, producer will be required to pay all expense monies prior to the event date.
