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!

There’s a saying that “if you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life.” Like an endless summer vacation. Well, since being handed the keys on New Year’s Day this year, Jenn and I have spent almost every moment of our endless summer working very hard to make some major updates and upgrades to our new space (and we’ve loved every minute of it)!read more

One of the first changes we wanted to make to studio/stage when Jenn and I took over in January, was to renovate the studio into a more open, welcoming space. The front window had been boarded up for almost a decade, giving the space a dark, almost unwelcoming, feel. What better way to indicate new faces working behind the scenes at studio/stage, than give the building itself a face-lift?read more
