The Black Box Studio is the more intimate side of the theater at Rutgers–Camden. Frequently used as both a production space and a classroom, the Black Box is built to serve many functions. With its clever, re-configurable seating arrangement, performances can be staged as if in a very small proscenium, in-the-round, and everything in between. Seating capacity can range anywhere from 68 (stadium configuration) to 100 plus (arena configuration).
The Black Box Studio is primarily used to stage student-directed pieces (such as our annual One-Act Festival), and as a rehearsal space for various different groups, including some from the neighboring community. Occasionally, a mainstage production will be performed in the Black Box due to its flexible nature.
Rutgers-Camden parking is free from 5 pm Friday to 11 pm Sunday and during times when regular classes are not held (Spring Break, non-Summer Session hours). During other hours the parking fee is $2 per pass (one vehicle).
Normally parking is available only in Rutgers Lot 11 on the waterfront next to Campbell’s Field. Most of the time, Rutgers operates round-trip shuttles from Lot 11 to the main campus. Guests are welcome to use these shuttles. Infrequently, we are able to provide a limited number of parking passes to on-campus lots (Lots 13, 14, 1, 2, 3).
