OUR STORY

Agreed upon vision to unite and draw strength from:

Collaboration: to create bonds of loyalty and friendship among working and aspiring artists

Culture: to elevate the human spirit through the transformative power of art.

Community: to serve the creative needs and aspirations of the town, County and beyond

Black Box Performing Arts Center (BBPAC), a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in Teaneck 2015 and relocated to 49 East Palisade Avenue in Englewood in 2019, and Black Box Studios (BBS), which has operated in Bergen County since 2007, together form Northern NJ’s premiere theater and performing arts school combo. BBPAC is a working professional theater run by The Black Box Rep Company, a group of collaborative artists engaging in collaborative, cutting-edge theater. The tight-knit community self-generates full seasons of cutting edge theater, reviving classics both old and newer, while also developing original works for the intimate stage. Many of these professionals double as teaching artists for Black Box Studios, running classes and workshops at the theater and at various schools and organizations in the area, for students currently ranging in age from 9 to 81. Our team is also focused on presenting other art forms within the space, such as comedy and music, as we host the emergence of a new and unique artistic community.

Black Box PAC has a number of safety measures in place to mitigate spread of COVID-19 and to keep all actors, staff, and audience safe. BBPAC reserves the right to adjust protocols as needed. Please check ticketing links before attending to see if any protocols have changed prior to your visit.
