Rental Information

A wide variety of production items are available for rental for both personal and professional use. You may browse our stock rooms Monday-Friday from 12pm-5pm. Note: we are unable to look for items/sizes for you. You may reserve items by paying a deposit (50% of rental fee-non-refundable) at time of reservation and then scheduling a pick-up date.

Rental items must be picked up/dropped off on Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays between 1-5 PM – BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Please call Heather Pulkowski to make an appointment. (262-782-4431)  If you visit Sunset to rent or return items without an appointment, you will be turned away.  Only Heather can show you props or receive return of props and again, this may be done ONLY with a scheduled appointment.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Unless an invoice is provided (schools, established accounts,) full payment for the rental is required at pickup. (Cash or Check) A refundable damage deposit may also be required. Items may not be altered without prior approval. Lost or damaged items must be replaced or compensated for. All costumes must be dry cleaned upon return with proof by receipt. Costumes which do not fit may be returned before the production start date for a refund, and no dry cleaning is required for those items.

Additional charges to be determined at time of rental for periods that extend beyond the 3 week time period (generally 50% of original rental fee per each additional week – i.e. if an item is rented for $20 for up to three weeks, each additional week will be charged at $10 per week.)
