Rental Services

The Pumphouse Theatres has opted into the Alberta Government Restrictions Exemption Program as not only does it allow you to present the shows you have been working so hard on, but it is also in the best interests of public safety during a pandemic. The requirements that will be a condition of gaining access to the building will be mandatory not only for patrons, but also of your cast, crew and volunteers.
