School of the Arts: Club SOTA

Club SOTA at the School of the Arts is an ideal location for small one or two person shows requiring very minimal technical support. Club SOTA is perfect for stand-up comedy, spoken word or improv performances. The area does not include wing space or a back-stage cross-over. The flexible seating can accommodate 40-50 people comfortably, and is set with carpeting, café tables and chairs. The stage area is flanked by two floor-to-ceiling windows, and the room includes a charming hearth. Lighting trees and minimal sound system are included. There is no storage space available; dressing rooms and performer restrooms are located on the same floor within close proximity to the space. Club SOTA is best-suited to performances that depend on the strength of the performer and/or the written word, and not on complicated production needs. Club SOTA is fully handicapped accessible via elevator. Please Note: SOTA does charge a nominal technical fee for the Fringe performances we host.
