Black Box Theater

The Black Box is home to Parish's ambitious theatre department. The space hosts between five and eight main stage productions as well as countless classroom productions and showcases. Housing Parish's technical theatre program, Parish students design and build sets as well as run lights and sound, and crew shows. 

Parish produces two musicals per year - one middle school and one upper school - starring upwards of 50 students. 

We invite you to join us in the Black Box Theater this year at one of our featured events.
