Announcement

Effective April 1st, we will be increasing our rates for the first time in nearly 10 years of operation for rehearsals, memberships, and venue rentals. The increase of costs has put us in this situation, and we want to let you know that our investment in the music community, resources, and backline, and the studio itself has also increased. This year you will see those improvements as you enter our facility. We are forever grateful for you choosing Playground Productions Studio for your creative needs.
