and a black-box, this theater allows audiences and artists to enjoy a creative

We present over 50 performance evenings and matinees each season featuring work by our Artists In Residence (AIR) and Space Grantees, the Upstart Program, Guest Curated Performance & Discussion Series, Visitor’s Programs, and the work of young artists from our arts education programs and beyond.
