Padua Hills Theatre offers community use to nonprofits

The city of Claremont Padua Hills Theatre Community Use Program reserves dates each year for local non-profit organizations interested in hosting community events at substantially reduced rates. Applications for events that will take place between January 1 and December 31, 2014 are now being accepted.  Applications are subject to the review and approval of the Community Use Committee. 

Agencies that are awarded a community use date will receive an event rental package that is valued at over $5550.

There are currently 9 community use days available throughout the year that accommodate both weekend and weekday events. All applications must be submitted to the Hughes Community Center, 1700 Danbury Rd., by Monday, March 18 at 5 p.m. for priority consideration. Otherwise, applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Nonprofit organizations interested in submitting an application may download an Event Planning Form, Facility Rules, and Community Use Addendum on the city website at 

An optional meeting will be conducted at the Padua Hills Theatre on Tuesday, March 5 at 11 a.m. to tour the site. RSVP to Management Analyst Lauren Marshall if you plan to attend. Ms. Marshall can be reached at 399-5356 or
