Rent The Bike and Go Places
Centrally located, comfortably furnished, and modernly equipped, the Yellow Bicycle Theater might just be the ideal venue for your next play, workshop, or screening. The streamlined design draws on over twenty years of fringe and indie production experience in four countries. Every inch is put to optimal use to keep operating costs low and rental rates affordable so that artists can make money making art. The theater will be available for rental beginning in June. Standard rates start at just $80 per hour. See Hire Notes below for Philly Fringe and Free Fringe discounts.
Conveniently situated across from Love Park in bustling Center City at the intersection of Philly’s two subway lines. There’s a parking garage under the park and another by Trader Joe’s two streets over. And for visiting New York productions, there’s a train every hour from Manhattan to Suburban station a block away.
36 theater seats with wide, thick cushions, padded arms and plenty of leg room ensure audiences aren’t squirming an hour into the show. And if you prefer more seats and less stage, you can add another 8 stacking chairs for a total of 44. The backstage can seat four actors comfortably, with room for another four in the dressing room/tech booth.
Fixed lighting with twelve 120 W par cans and four color LED pars on 16 separate channels connected via DMX to a backstage tech desk. Two dimmer channels available for additional lighting. A widescreen monitor on the desk displays a 1080p image of the stage with audio from two Shure Centraverse mics to assist with tech. Lights and sound are run via Qlab on a dedicated MacBook. The laptop also runs a short-throw 1080p DLP projector with a 120″ screen. To run tech from the seating area there’s an iPad with QLab Remote. And a FujiFilm X-T3 with tripod, shotgun mic, and TV is available for self-tapes and on-camera classes.
