With Seattle in Phase 2 of Governor Inslee's Safe Start Plan, we are making our building accessible for rehearsal requests and rentals. Using the building for rehearsal for the near future will mean adhering to COVID-19 specific protocols in addition to our standard building use policies. We are also asking that artists reserve time in 4-hour minimum blocks of time and we will be limiting the number of artist groups in a day so that we have enough time to clean and prep the space between groups. To request rehearsal space, please use the form below. If you have questions, feel free to email

Need space for a rehearsal, meeting, or performance? 

The need for affordable and professional spaces to create art is palpable in Seattle.  On the Boards wants its spaces used by community members more of the time! Rentals at the Behnke Center for Contemporary Performance are a service of OtB.  They are not curated, though priority is given to shows and events that align with our mission and values. 
For shows, events, or projects that are socially or civically inclusive, please contact us to discuss partnerships, co-production, or subsidized rental if rates are prohibitive.
