Hire the Gryphon‎ > ‎


The rates to hire the Gryphon are: 

  • First day in theatre: $350+GST
  • Each subsequent performance day: $250+GST
  • Each subsequent non-performance day: $150+GST
Non-theatre use attracts a standard hire fee of $350+GST per day, regardless of the term of hire.

Rates exclude GST but include administration, hire, gas, water, maintenance, sound equipment and lighting equipment. Tea and coffee are not included.

Bookings are confirmed once a deposit of 25 per cent of the total hire has been paid. However, because we have found that it is difficult to find replacements for last-minute cancellations, we stipulate that the deposit is refundable only where a booking is cancelled more than 3 months before the hire period starts.

A $500 bond is required for the term of each hire. This is to cover breakage, damage, cleaning (if necessary), etc and is returned after your season unless all or part of it is retained by Stagecraft pursuant to the Hire Agreement.

All monies must be paid before pack-in.

Toll calls and calls to cell or mobile phones must also be paid for and an invoice will be sent to you when we have received the telephone bill.

Bookings for tickets cannot be done through the Gryphon Theatre, so hirers must make their own arrangements.

A professional ticketing service is offered through Ticketek or you may make other arrangements.
