Terms and Conditions:

Though Links Hall has several programs, such as the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, that will run in studio B this season Linkage partnerships performances are only available in Studio A.

If you request a specific in-house LD/PSM who you have worked with before Links Hall cannot guarantee that we will book then for your production, but fear, not all our tech staff are excellent human beings and designers.

Links Hall can not rent specialized equipment for your production or provide any equipment not available on site. Please check our inventory for Studio A HERE.

Links Hall cannot provide traveling or housing support for touring artists or support for prop or set sourcing.

Links Hall does not provide any design/production support beyond our in-house LD/PSM during their contracted hours but does handle ticket pre-sales, house management, and provides basic marketing support in the form of press releases and online listings.
