Welcome and thank you for considering Next Generation Theatre as the location to hold your event. We are Brewer’s newest venue for local musicians and live acts to perform. We are also happy to make the space available for the public to rent for a party, fundraiser, meeting or other gathering. We want to make sure that your event is pleasant and successful, so we ask that you read over our policies listed below to ensure a complete understanding of our guidelines and expectations.
The theatre space is available to rent for $75 per hour. Each rental includes a free 30 minutes before the event to set up and an additional 30 minutes after the event to clean up, also at no cost. There are no minimum or maximum amount of hours required to rent. While we want to ensure that your event is set up to your liking, please bear in mind that the theatre space is used on a daily basis for dance classes, children’s theatre rehearsals, and a variety of other things. Set up or clean up for your event cannot take more than the allotted time, otherwise additional time must be included in your rental fee. Maximum occupancy by law is 127 people. For your convenience we have tables and chairs and a variety of decorative accents to enhance any occasion, or feel free to bring in your own. Tables and chairs may be rearranged with prior permission, however the other furniture in the theatre must remain in place as it is a space that is constantly in use. We will do our best to accommodate whatever type of event you have in mind (within reason) so please just let us know what you need.
For an additional cost you may have access to our sound system ($15) and kitchen ($15-$25, depending on the use). This can include the use of the oven, the refrigerator, coffee maker and sink. Please make sure to discuss your specific needs with the owner.
We have a variety of themed backdrops from our theatre shows that you may request to hang on the stage for your event. There is a $20 fee for use of the backdrops. Please let us know what you are looking for and we will hang them prior to your event taking place.
According to our insurance policy, we must ask that no children be allowed on the stage at any time and that they stay inside the theatre during the event under close adult supervision. If they leave for any reason at all they must be accompanied by an adult.
Due to the cost of trash removal by the city of Brewer, we ask that you please remove any trash created by your party when you leave (this applies to private parties only).
According to our state liquor license, you may not bring any alcohol into the building. We have a cash bar available where you may purchase wine or beer. Please let us know in advance if you will need an attendant available during your event to sell alcohol or concessions or if you have any particular brand you would like made available.
As a renter, please remember that this building is open for business while the theatre space is being used. As stated before, we have daily dance, theatre, and art classes, as well as customers shopping in our gift shop. Please know that as the renter you are responsible for guests of your function and that it is the expectation that all guests conduct themselves in a respectable manner, all children are attended to, and that the facility is treated with care so that others may also enjoy it. Any damages that may incur to the property, equipment, inventory, or the building in general as a result of the renter or the guests of the event will be the sole financial responsibility of the renter.
We expect a $50 deposit at the time your event is booked for us to secure the date of your event, and the $50 will go towards your final rental fee. The theatre is in high demand, and so to ensure that dates do not get held frivolously, we ask that you make the deposit without exception. That being said, we understand that unexpected circumstances do occur, so if your event needs to rescheduled we ask that you do so as soon as possible and the $50 will serve as deposit for the new date. The deposit will not be refunded, however, if the event is cancelled within two weeks before the booked date.
If you are renting the space for a performance, we will take care of the publicity in our ‘Upcoming Events’ fliers in the store and on our website, as well as the local newspapers including the Bangor Daily News, The Weekly, The Maine Edge, and Events in Maine. We ask that you email us at email@example.com with all of your press release information, as well as a photo image (if desired) no later than 2 weeks prior to your event.
When the event is completed, Next Generation Theatre will issue you a bill containing the remainder of your balance. It is expected that the payment be made in full before leaving your event unless other arrangements are previously made with the owner.
Again, thank you in advance for considering Next Generation Theatre as the location to hold your next event!

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant! “
