Rental Opportunities

Newsies as performed on November 16+17, 2018 at the Tolman Stage in Pawtucket, RI.

AWIP is in the beginning stages of renting out our beautiful sets, props, and costumes to local theatre companies at reasonable prices. If you are visiting this page, please know that we are in a ‘trial mode’ for renting out our shows, offering items from “Newsies” to a handful of organizations. We will be grateful for your feedback on the process from start to finish!

Policies and Fine Print

  • All renters must sign and agree to the terms on our waiver and liability forms. Renters will pay for and/or replace any lost or damaged items, and will not hold AWIP liable for any incident involving these items while in the Renter’s possession.
  • Renters will be responsible for the transportation of items to and from their performance location.
  • We offer individual pricing if the renter is only interested in a few items; however, our complete packages offer the best deal. We require a deposit on all items rented and will retain a percentage of that deposit for cleaning and restocking purposes.
  • Our tech director and/or set builder may be available to assist you with assembling the set pieces for an additional fee to be agreed upon separately.
  • Please fill out this form to request rental items or contact us if you have any questions.
  • AWIP reserves the right to withhold any items from a package if they are in use.
