The 250-seat Black Box Theatre, located on the north side of the Performing Arts Center, is an intimate venue for all performing artists, such as poets, musicians, dancers, and theatre events.  This specially-designed, flexible theatre, all in black, allows for varied configurations of traditional, three-quartered, or in-the-round seating as required by the production.  The walls are covered with acoustic diffuser panels painted black. A catwalk-grid also runs around the ceiling for theater lighting equipment, ceiling adjustments, and maintenance.  This theater is intended for educational purposes as the lighting and sound booth can be utilized as a classroom for training in lighting and sound design.
