StageCrafts L.L.C. is a venue management and rental company co-founded in 2016 by the husband and wife team of Greg and Jenn Crafts. Both known figures in the Los Angeles theatrical scene, Jenn and Greg are thrilled to launch this new venture, and make it their mission to provide L.A. artists with safe, stylish, clean, and well-equipped venues available to rent at a reasonable cost.
Our goal is to keep studio/stage booked around the clock. Whether it’s a theatrical production, an acting class, a play reading, or even a church service on Sunday morning, there’s almost always something going on. Take a look at our calendar and start planing your event!

Our friends at the Theatrical Producers League of Los Angeles have created a Renting Producer’s Question Guide for Venues. It’s a handy document that all producers in need of a venue should bring with them on a tour. It will remind you of the questions you know you need to ask, and give you a few questions you never knew you needed the answers to (until now, that is). We decided to take the Question Guide and post our answers here for your convenience. Take a look!read more

Yep, a lot’s happened in the last six months. But you know what hasn’t happened? A good ol’ summer afternoon hangout.read more
