Catering, Concessions, and Receptions

All catering for event personnel (not audience) must be ordered through Hofstra’s Catering Services provider, Lackmann Culinary Services.

Limited concessions may be sold by the rental organization for an event audience in the Lower Lounge upon request.  Bottled water and pre-approved snack foods are the only food and beverage permitted in the auditorium.  Please include any concession items in the technical requirements for approval.

Due to it’s architecture, the Playhouse is not a suitable space for any post- or pre-show receptions of any sizable scale.  If a reception is desired, please contact the Director of Theater Facilities to begin to coordinate with Hofstra University Event Management and Hofstra Dining Services.  Not all requests can be accommodated, and all reception costs including space rental and food services are billable beyond the Adams Playhouse Rental Fees.
