Black Box Theatre

The versatile main auditorium black-box space was constructed in 2014. The raised

performance platform can cater to a number of seating and staging arrangements,

allowing the space to host a seemingly unrestricted variety of event types for an audience of up to 150.


To date, the space has hosted opera performances from Salt Marsh Opera, immersive Jazz concerts featuring performers from the prestigious Jazz at Lincoln Center and a live-scored cinema event with the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra. Other events have included repertory film screenings, traditionally staged theatrical productions, film festivals,

chamber music and piano recitals, dance performance and even a live workout with fitness expert Tony Horton.


Additional renovations in the first phase of construction will equip the black-box theatre with new, premium lighting, sound and projection equipment to further its ability to host more technically and visually advanced productions.
