Boyd Vance Theater
It serves as a hard reservation for the space(s) and a damage/cleanup deposit.
Yes, renters will receive the deposit upon the condition that there is no outstanding balance and the space is left in its original state.
Prospective renters should contact the museum staff directly for information of available dates. Call 512-974-4926.
The Boyd Vance Theatre seats 134.
Depending on the layout of an event, the lobby holds from 100-200 people. If the event is completed seated, only 100 patrons will be fit comfortably in the lobby. If the event is standing and flowing, 200 people will fit comfortably in the lobby.
Unfortunately the Carver does not have table coverings for renters. If an emergency arises, the Events Supervisor or Carver Event Staff will assist.
Please know that while the Carver’s stove, sink, refrigerator and freezer are available, it is not possible to provide cooking utensils for events.
Because the Carver kitchen must remain accessible to clients and Carver programs, overnight storage is not permitted.
