Workspace Program ↓
Rent Our Spaces ↓
Tarragon Theatre offers our upgraded Near Studio (now called WorkSpace) to independent artists and companies as a creation space and/or venue to develop work and offer presentations and performances. We offer this free space to support individual artists, collectives, independent companies, etc. in the creation of theatre by relieving artists of some of the costs associated with theatre-making. It is our hope that we will introduce artists and audiences to each other to bolster support of independent artists/companies, and expose our audience to new experiences.
If you have a project that is in development and you think might be a good fit for WorkSpace, contact us with details about the project and date(s) you are interested in.
