Lobby Information


  • The Playhouse is happy to offer our downstairs Marilyn Meyerhoff Lobby space for use on a very limited basis for community events or meetings, and to local residents for small private functions.
  • The lobby is available, depending on the Playhouse’s schedule, from November through April. The suggested donation is $100 per hour. Your donation covers all expenses related to the use of the facility.
  • Non-profit organizations – please contact us for information on non-profit use.
  • A security/booking deposit of $100 must be paid at the time you reserve the lobby. This deposit will be refunded after the event is over and the premises are inspected. This deposit is non-refundable if you cancel your event.

  • The number of people at your event should not exceed 100; this really is the capacity of the room, even when people are standing.
  • You should calculate your total hours of use to include set-up and clean-up times.
  • If you are serving alcohol, you must obtain your own general liquor liability insurance and list MV Playhouse as an additional insured and a certificate holder. Please check with your insurance broker about getting a special event policy or purchase one online.
  • If you send out invitations or promote your event in any way, please make sure that Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse is listed as the venue only.
  • A Playhouse staff member will assist you and answer any questions you may have. This person will open up the building,  make sure the building is locked after your event, and be on call in case of an emergency.
