Rent the Center

Thyen-Clark Cultural Center and Jasper Arts Center Rate Schedule

The Jasper Arts Center is available for rental for a variety of uses. The Arts Center includes an auditorium, dressing rooms, green room, community room/dance studio and art gallery. Rental prices are based on the type of usage required as well as areas of the building used. All renters must provide liability insurance. Rentals are based on blocks of times: four hours for event, five hours for set-up and rehearsals. Full building rentals include general stage lighting (wash from the front and overhead), use of the house sound system and use of follow-spots (renter provides operators). Piano usage may also be arranged for an additional fee. A JCA representative will be on hand for full building rentals to oversee lighting and sound.

The auditorium in the Arts Center is a 675 seat proscenium style theater. An additional 25 padded chairs are set up in the rear of the audience bringing the total capacity to 700. The proscenium opening is 40 ft. wide by 16 ft. high with the stage approximately 35 feet deep. Wing space is limited. The Arts Center also has a green room and two small dressing rooms (for 6 & 5 people) complete with rest room facilities and showers. The dressing rooms and the green room are half a level up from the stage.

The community room/dance studio is 27 ft. by 52 ft. and is half a level down from the stage with direct access into the auditorium. The room features a resilient dance floor and mirrors along one wall. Adequate numbers of table and chairs are available in the community room for a variety of purposes.

The Krempp Gallery hosts monthly exhibits of works by local, regional and national artists. The Gallery also serves as the lobby for full building usages. A small kitchenette and a coat room are located directly off the Gallery and a box office is located at its entrance.
