3. Deposit: A $200 damage deposit check is due at the time of pick-up. Please make checks out to: Apollinaire Theatre Company. The deposit will be held until all items are returned and their condition assessed by an Apollinaire staff member. Damage, loss, alteration or failure to return items will result in full or partial forfeiture of the deposit based on the cost of repair or replacement. If the repair or replacement of damaged or lost items exceeds the deposit amount, additional deposit fees will be charged.
