Package House



A “Package House” is a great fundraising opportunity!

A Package House is when an organization buys a special performance of a specific show for a flat rate ($675 for plays, $800 for musicals).  The organization then sells the tickets for a higher rate then normal and usually provides a “special” experience with appetizers, raffles, etc.  TNT will provide the tickets, the space and the show — you do the rest!

The TNT Package House is a joint venture between TNT and the community. TNT’s goal being to expose more people to community theatre and to provide your organization with a  social/fundraising opportunity.

Your organization contracts to book the entire theatre/show giving you a total of 172 tickets.   You decide how much to sell your tickets for but they must not be sold for less than our group rates ($11 for a play and $16 for musical).

To arrange a package house make your selections and return the package-house-application as soon as possible as packages are booked on a first come-first served basis.  The sooner your application in post-marked the better your chances of getting your first choice of show.  Only two dates per week and only four per show (three for musicals) are sold.

Once the applications are received and your selection is available and booked, then you will be sent a contract only if your selected date has not already been chosen by another group.  When you receive your contract it must be returned with a deposit check for $150 within 21 days or the date and show that you chose will be considered open and available to others.  If after you have made your deposit, you may cancel in writing to the Package House Chair with-in 30 days of your show date in order to receive a refund.  If TNT must cancel your show date, your deposit will be refunded ASAP.

If you have contracted a show and TNT is unable to secure the rights due to limitations imposed by the publisher, you will be notified and may either cancel your contract with a refund of the deposit or change to another available show and date.

Refreshments may be served one hour before curtain and at intermission ONLY.  Serving alcoholic beverages is your responsibility.  Publicity is the key to a successful Package House.  You may wish to emphasize that your guests will receive an entertaining night out, with refreshments as well as supporting your worthy cause.  TNT will refer the public to your fundraiser if our public performances are sold out.

The following shows projected for production in 2016-2017 are still available for Package Houses.

JANUARY 2017  SYLVIA by A. R. Gurney     Director – L. Bennett                

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mutt, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

PACKAGE HOUSE DATES AVAILABLE:  1/17, 1/18, 1/19, 1/22, 1/24, 1/25, 1/26

MAY  DEATHTRAP  by Ira Levin     Director – D. Nuhfer  

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

PACKAGE HOUSE DATE AVAILABLE: 5/7, 5/9, 5/10, 5/11, 5/14, 5/16, 5/17, 5/18
