Boxcar Playhouse

The Boxcar Playhouse is a black box theatre with a completely arrangeable performance space. The flexibility of our theatre allows us, and renters, to create ever changing and unique floor configurations. Whether in the round, three-quarters, two-sided, traverse, or traditional proscenium, patrons continually comment about how the space transforms so easily and entirely.

 

The playhouse is occasionally available for special events, rehearsals, workshops, staged readings, and performances.



 

Boxcar Studios

The new Boxcar Theatre Studios is 3600 sq ft of Rehearsal/Performance/Event/Gallery space. The front has a luscious lobby area with an attached gallery featuring paintings, photographs, and other visual work from local artists. The Studios features two performance venues: Studio A is geared towards larger performances, while Studio B is geared towards rehearsals, workshops and readings. There are two dressing rooms located in the space along with three bathrooms offering comfortability for patrons and artists.

With funding from the San Francisco Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the new Boxcar Theatre Studios is ideal for solo performances, chamber music concerts, poetry readings and other one night only events. The Studios can also support longer runs and is a venue for emerging arts and groups to produce professional quality theatre without the cost.
