Theater // Accommodates 200


The SteamPlant theater is ideal for concerts, live theater and dance productions, movie screenings, lectures, and conferences. We’ve even had folks get married on our theater stage!


The theater got a face lift in 2016 with all new chairs, thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of the Steamplant.

For wedding packages, the theater is included in your rental as a back-up for the plaza in case of inclement weather.

While you are welcome to hire any professional caterer you like (provided they can furnish a copy of their business license and proof of insurance), check out this list of local folks we trust and love working with!

Caterers are charged 10% of their gross revenues to cater in the SteamPlant. This fee includes use of the kitchen and kitchen equipment and cleanup associated with food preparation for the event.

Caterers often add the 10% to your bill to cover this cost. The SteamPlant provides your caterer with equipment that they normally have to rent, thus lowering their expense and yours!

Beverage Service

Because of the way our liquor license works, the SteamPlant provides all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for all events hosted here. Absolutely no outside alcohol is allowed on the premises.

However, we often get inquiries from folks who have connections to breweries or distributors, and we are happy to work with you to figure out how we can serve that keg from your employer or friend! Please contact us for more information.

We can set up a hosted bar, cash bar, or a combination of the two for your event. Our staff of professional bartenders will take care of you with full bar service of our house beverages or specific drinks you choose for your event.
