Current Production Season

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. 

The Black Box Studio Theater is also available for rental for many different kinds of events. For information on renting the space, visit the Campus Events Page.

Parking Information

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).
