The Black Box is an interior space that is painted black (thus the name) and provides a flexible space for a variety of performances. The black setting creates a neutral space so that the color from costumes, lighting and scenery can provide the focus for audience members. Although the Black Box is a more intimate space than the Mainstage, it features the same type of sprung floor, acoustical drapes, lighting equipment, and sound equipment as the Mainstage. Retractable seats accommodate seating for 100. The space allows a number of options including proscenium, thrust, and arena style staging. This space can also be used for receptions and other rental functions.
