Off the top of my head, didn't they use {reHwI'} for a "player" (i.e. actor)?

>appreciate it. Other suggestions are also welcome.

As a model, we have {chenmoHlu'meH Daq} "construction site" from the BoP 
poster, so if they were musicians, you could call it a {muchmeH Daq} "place 
for performing (music)".  If dancers, a {mI'meH Daq} "place for dancing" - 
though this could just as well mean "gymnasium"!  On the List we sometimes 
use {Da} "behave as, act in the manner of" for "act" and {DawI'} for 
"actor, actress", so I suppose you could call it a {DameH Daq} or {reHmeH 
Daq} in a pinch.
