From imaginative retellings of classic tales to unique and earnest stories of human connection, plays in the Black Box Theatre warm our hearts, challenge our minds, and entertain us entirely. In its fourth year, the Black Box Repertory Company features a rotating cast of actors who shapeshift from one role to the next.
While our building is closed to the public, the directors and cast of this year's Black Box Repertory season are hosting versions of their nightly post-show talkbacks virtually in their living rooms - so everyone can revisit these productions in their own homes.
Director Geoffrey Kent and actors Kevin Hart, Kevin Rich, Edith Weiss and Zachary Andrews talk about Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. From staging a murder mystery in a unique space to the famous mustache - listen in to this virtual talkback.
The Black Box Repertory Season is presented by members of the Arvada Center’s Black Box Repertory Company of actors, directors, technical artists, and designers. Audiences will see the repertory actors throughout the season in a variety of roles. Since its inception in 2017, the Black Box Repertory company and its creative staff have been recognized as a groundbreaking and relevant component of the Colorado theatre community.
The Arvada Center Box Office, its phone center, and the Arvada Center website, are the only authorized official ticket providers of Arvada Center ticketed events. We are not responsible for tickets purchased from any other sources, such as brokers or secondary market websites. We encourage patrons to purchase tickets only from the Arvada Center. By purchasing from the official ticket provider, you are assured that the ticket you receive is valid and being sold to you at face value.
Due to the nature of live theatrical bookings - dates, titles, availability and prices are subject to change.
Ticket prices may be increased due to the popularity of any given production. Tickets initially purchased at the introductory price will incur the difference in price when exchanged after dynamic pricing is implemented. We will, however, maintain our introductory pricing for value seating throughout the run of the production. Exchange fees may apply.
Our theater performances are not recommended for children under the age of 6 years. Some exceptions may apply in regards to family-oriented productions. Everyone attending must have a ticket. No children in laps, seat sharing, or infants in carriers or arms will be permitted.
The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities strives to inform audiences about the content of any given production prior to purchasing tickets. However, to help you make an informed decision on whether a production is appropriate for your child, we encourage you to seek additional information on each production you consider attending. Children disturbing the enjoyment of other theatre patrons may be removed from the venue at the discretion of the theatre’s management. No refund will be given.
Please ask the Box Office staff any questions you might have regarding children attending our productions. 720-898-7200 or email@example.com
