This new state-of-the-art black box theatre is home for Theatre at Barton as well as a regional host for two professional theatre companies: Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy, headquartered in Raleigh, and Wilson’s annual Theatre of the American South Series.
The black box theatre provides Barton College and its community with a premier teaching facility for the dramatic arts as well as an excellent environment for entertainment and performances of a broad scope. This flexible and functional space is easily adaptable for theatre, dance, symphony concerts, opera performances and lectures.
The facility consists of several spaces including a spacious atrium that can serve as a reception area and gallery for college and community events, a fully-equipped scene shop for building props and scenery, offices for theatre program personnel, dressing rooms, costume storage and, of course, the performance space.
The flexible performance space provides an opportunity to engage the audience with varied seating and performance configurations for each show. Upwards of six main stage productions, two symphony concerts, and two choir performances ensure that our audiences will always have something to look forward to each year.
