  • Send a JPG of your show flyer to rent@lyrichyperion.com, and we’ll post it in our on our calendar. 
  • Send us your facebook event and/or ticket link so that we can share on our facebook page and instagram.
  • Drop off 3 color flyers, 8.5″ square or smaller, and we will put them up. 
  • If you make postcards we can put them in our postcard rack.

Parking
The Medicus parking lot next door is off limits to performers, students and cafe customers! Park first on Hyperion, and avoid nearby residential streets. But sometimes, our neighbor lets us rent the lot for the audience of an evening or weekend event. Please let us know if you would like to rent the parking lot, and we will ask our neighbor for you. Remember to give us at least a week’s notice to put in the request — and remember it’s up to our neighbor’s discretion, and not guaranteed.

Tech
Our Facility Guide tells each member of your team just what they need to know to plan and put up a show here. Your producer, stage manager, designers, and so on should all read their respective pages. Really! There are hard copies at the theater you can borrow and use. The guide is short and sweet and well-organized, and will save you many hours of hair pulling. (Also, if you don’t follow instructions, you risk losing your security deposit.)

The Lighting Grid with circuit numbers is vital to design your plot. At the theater, we’ve also got the grid on a transparency that you can lay atop your set plan and scribble on with eraseable felt pens. Learn the cooler features of our ETC Smartfade 1248 console and software by watching tutorials at the ETC website.

Food
Outside food or drink is not permitted anywhere on the premises without special arrangement and fee. All renters are responsible for their students, cast and/or audience following this rule! Our café offers a full menu every day, and excellent event-catering options priced for all budget levels, including greenroom specials for cast & crew. Please contact café staff with a week’s notice to plan catering for your event. For an additional fee, lobby and patio can be closed to the public for private parties.
