theatre which produces its own shows in-house. Theaters which do not produce their own material are known as receiving houses.
The term is generally used only in connection to plays, or opera, or dance. Musical performances are rarely considered a production of a particular theater. Some theaters may produce some of their own shows, but also rent its facilities to shows produced elsewhere. These venues are both "producing" and "receiving" houses.
