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 155 tickets. You decide how much to sell your tickets for but they must not be sold for less than our group rates ($14 for a play and $17 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.
