Downtown Arts Center/Black Box Theatre

141 East Main Street
Lexington, KY  40507

The Downtown Arts Center (DAC) is a vibrant arts center encompassing the Black Box Theatre, the DAC Box Office, the City Gallery and rehearsal space.

The DAC is both a performing arts venue for rent and a presenting entity.  This hybrid approach helps to ensure the vitality and diversity of the productions offered, including those from both long-established and newly created groups working in dance, theater, spoken word, film and other art forms. 

The Black Box Theatre is a 250-seat contemporary black box with flexible seating.  It is equipped with lighting and sound capabilities, two dressing rooms, a green room, a backstage area and a loading dock.  The rehearsal hall provides a more informal space for auditions, rehearsals and theatrical workshops, as well as the presentation of experimental works. 

For information about mounting a production at the Black Box Theater, contact Jim Clark at 859.255.2951.
