Activities and Programs
to be held at 5628 Vineland Avenue, North Hollywood

New Musicals Inc (NMI) just received a grant from the Ahmanson Foundation to upgrade its facilities in North Hollywood, and we’d love to invite you to be part of our next phase!  We invite you to submit a proposal for your activities and programming.  These might include:

  • acting/singing classes
  • video shoots
  • rehearsals
  • services
  • readings
  • casual gatherings
  • recitals
  • open mic
  • improv
  • or anything else you can dream up

We’re flexible.  Your proposal doesn’t have to be directly related to musical theatre; it could be theatre, comedy, music, video, education, or social.  It could be a single event, or once-a-week, or a few weeks, or ongoing.  We’re likely to favor regularly-scheduled events, and ones which have a musical or theatre component, but pitch us anything!  We’re flexible.

Our rates for the general public are $50/hour weekdays, $75/hour weeknights…but make us an offer.  Bulk discounts?  No need for equipment?  Off-peak hours when the space would otherwise be empty?  Maybe we know you or can get to know you over time, and we don’t need to include a supervisor fee.

We have lot of equipment which we don’t normally rent to the public, but for this Request for Proposals, we’re open to discussing giving you access to our equipment; just build your tech requests into your proposal, and we’ll talk.
