Costume Rental Policy
Writers Theatre Costume Rentals
Security Deposit: All rentals require a security deposit of 50% of the value of the total rental. This must be paid prior to receipt of the items rented. The security deposit can be applied to the total rental charge upon return of the rented items.
Pulling Fee: We encourage a renting organization to make an appointment to pull items in person. If this is not possible, Writers Theatre will pull items for a fee of $20.00 per hour, to be added to total rental amount.
Late Fee: All rental items are due back to Writers Theatre 10 business days after a production’s closing date. Any items returned after the 10 day period will incur a fee of $5.00 per item per day late.
Replacement Cost: Any damage or loss of rental items will be charged to the renter based on the replacement value listed on the rental agreement.
Alterations: All rental items must be returned in their original condition. No cutting, dyeing, painting, gluing or distressing is allowed under any circumstances. Any alterations or changes to the item’s appearance must be restored before return. All items not returned in original condition will result in additional fees to the renter.
Garment Care: All items must be professionally laundered or dry cleaned before return. A fee of $10.00 per item will be assessed for any items not cleaned. All repairs must be performed in a professional manner.
Approval Policy: Items may be taken on an approval basis for a period of 14 days. All items not used for a production must be returned prior to the opening performance. Items not returned prior to opening will incur the regular weekly rental charge until returned.
Payment: Writers Theatre accepts cash, personal checks and company checks. We do not accept credit cards for rentals at this time.
