The Black-Box Players made their debut last year as a profit-share, resident company of actors. Their first production was an evening of four one act comedies (hence the title, "Fourplay") which played over two nights to full houses. A black box theatre is an intimate space that connects the actors and the audience in a way larger venues often can't. The focus is on the stories being told and the characters being brought to life instead of the technical elements. In the 60's and 70's when the black box came into vogue, it was often called "the actor's theatre" because the performances themselves took center stage when using limited sets and lighting effects. The Black-Box Players was created with that in mind and will bring to the stage works a bit different than our usual fare... an opportunity to actually work "outside of the box".
