What does it cost?
The cost will be different depending on the length of the show run, when you perform and the venue. It is important to fully understand the deal presented to you by your venue manager. You might be offered a box office split, a straight hire or a free venue. Make sure you check whether or not the costs include a technician and front of house / box office help. Also check if the costs include rehearsal and tech time.
You might also get charged for issuing comps, PRS or other smaller contras. Check the small print before you sign anything. It's better to be clear up front, this saves confusion down the line. Don't be scared of asking questions if you don't understand something.
