Cancellation and Rescheduling

Bedford Playhouse permits rental cancellations at any time, without penalty, up until 48 hours prior to the scheduled event. For cancellation requests with less than 48 hours’ notice, the renter may reschedule the event at no additional charge (one rescheduling permitted per rental). If the renter declines the rescheduling option, then Bedford Playhouse will retain 50% of the rental fee. If the renter cancels less than 24 hours in advance, they may reschedule at no additional charge or forfeit the entire rental fee.

All rescheduled events must take place within four weeks of the original event. Availability of particular showtimes or dates for rescheduled rentals cannot be guaranteed. If nothing is desirable or available within the four-week rescheduling window, the renter will receive whatever refund is available under the terms given above. Rental bookings are not transferable.

  • Main theater rentals include a free small popcorn & small fountain drink for each individual. Additional concessions must be pre-ordered when you reserve your private rental. 
  • If you choose to not use our concessions, the renter must inform Bedford Playhouse 24 hours prior to your rental.
