Rehearsal Hall

General Information

The rehearsal rooms are intended for use as support for the performance spaces at the Calderwood and to fulfill the mission of The Huntington. Deane Hall may also be used as a performance space for up to 80 patrons. Risers are available upon request; event capacity will depend on the riser configuration.

Deane Rehearsal Hall is located on the second floor of the Calderwood. It is an irregular rectangle with angular walls and floor to ceiling windows on the two walls overlooking Tremont Street. The west wall has an 8’ tall mirror running along its length and windows have blackout curtains. Deane Rehearsal Hall has vinyl flooring on top of a sprung wood floor. An irregular lighting grid follows the line of the roof and covers the entire space to within a few feet of the walls. The walls and floor may not be painted, screwed, bolted, or lagged into. The windows are equipped with sheer curtains and black out drapes.
