Village Theatre manages the Everett Performing Arts Center for the City of Everett, and in addition to presenting a season of high-quality family theatre, the management and technical staff of Village Theatre are dedicated to making EPAC the best possible place for you to hold your own performance, meeting, rehearsal, or special event. Presenting top-notch events is our business — so we can help you do it too!
All rentals are contracted on a “four-wall” basis. This means you pay a low fee for the use of the Center, and then pay only the actual costs for the staff required to run your event. You pay no overhead charges, no equipment fees – only a rental fee and direct staff and material costs. Village Theatre’s staff consults with you in event planning and production at no extra cost!
Base Use Fees
These are the fees you pay for use of the facility and its furniture and equipment. All direct costs for staff (including staff to operate the equipment) and materials used are charged in addition to the base fee. Only the direct costs will be passed on to you, so you pay only for exactly what is used, and nothing more!
Scheduling of personnel is at the discretion of Village Theatre, and a House Manager is required for all events. Please see “staff resources” for details.
To qualify for Everett Renter rates, renter must have business address within Everett city limits. Resident companies with over 100 performances or public presentations in the facility per calendar year qualify for a weekly rate equal to three (3) times the 5-hour block rate.

We recommend that you schedule your event as far in advance as you can, as the calendar does tend to fill up. Additionally, we’d like plenty of time to consult with you and prepare for your event, so that we can be sure to provide all the planning and staff necessary.
Full service Box Office support is available for all rental events. The Box Office staff is equipped to handle a large volume of ticket sales via ticketing software and credit card processing technology. Customers are easily served via phone and in person at the box office.
