BLACK BOX THEATER
The Black Box, located at the northwest end of the PAC, is a unique “flexible seating” venue featuring new and experimental productions. Due to the nature of the theater, the exact number of seats available for performances is often not known until close to opening night. Therefore, a limited number of seats will be placed on sale at the beginning of the season until the exact seating count has been confirmed by the technical staff. All seating in the Black Box Theater is general admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact the Box Office at (661) 362-5304 for more information.
