We provide a projection screen. Our projector may be rented for $20 (total for run) to cover the cost of the bulb.
Tickets will be sold for $6 each. There will be a 50/50 split between the performer/presenter and Art House Productions. This means that for each ticket sold to your show, you will get $3.
