The Financial Structure

Whitefire Theatre has a financial structure unlike any other solo festival in the U.S

This structure has proven to be extremely successful. Every year approximately 40% of the participants have sold-out or nearly sold-out performances and 99% of all participants sold enough tickets to meet and/or surpass the $675 needed to cover the cost of the show.


  • The non-refundable down-payment of $175 secures the participant’s date and commitment to performing in the festival.

  • The first $675 of  box office ticket sales will go to the Whitefire Theatre, everything above that goes to the participant. Your show is paid for out of ticket sales.

  • It is recommended to charge $20-$25 per seat. Depending on what you decide to set your ticket price at - the first 27-34 seats will cover the cost of your show.

  • Whitefire is an 84-seat house that can expand to 90. You can conceivably net $1,125 - $1575
