Located in the McClintock building, the James A. Panowski Black Box Theatre, so named after our beloved retired Director of Theatre of 32 years, is the home of the lab/studio theatre series and one "mainstage" directed by faculty. Seating approximately 100 persons (exact capacity depends upon configuration), it provides a venue for student directors and designers. The normal configuration is thrust, but other configurations are possible, depending upon the needs of the production.
The lab/studio series produces two bills per year of one-act productions. All lab/studio shows are produced, directed, designed, and run by students.
