The Ghostlight has a private bar and piano for live entertainment.
- Rand Smith Auditorium—The 1,400 seat theatre is home to the large-scale productions that take place throughout the Renaissance season. Rentals come fully customizable and can include ticketing, staff, volunteers, concessions and bar resources.
- Theatre 166—The Black Box theatre, located west of the Historic Renaissance Theatre, is a 120-seated venue that is completely customizable. Equipped with full sound and lighting, this space is ideal for smaller events.
