Built in 2010 The Black Box Theater is located within Hamilton Center. This flexible performance space seats approximately 50 people and has its own control booth for sound and lighting.
Movable stage platforms make it possible to adapt the space in a number of configurations, from seating in the round to more conventional theater-styles. True to its name, the windowless space offers the opportunity to present works in near-total darkness.
Intended first and foremost as a creative space for students, the theater is used selectively for public events, including New Music New College.
Partial funding for the Black Box Theater has been provided by a grant from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation.
The BBT is primarily a New College venue devoted to academic and theatrical use. Students, thus, have the right to reserve the space for events if operating under proper procedure.Read more here
