MICA’s smallest black box theater presents a multipurpose events space, perfect for everything from small performances to receptions.

Completed in 2013 as part of MICA’s Leake Hall dormitory, A Box provides a center for arts and performance within the Founder’s Green complex. As a black box theater, A Box is a versatile space that can be transformed to meet the needs of a variety of events, ranging from theatrical to professional and educational. A Box’s unique glass garage-door looks out onto a patio and garden space, providing an attractive backdrop for events needing plenty of natural light. 

 

This performance space is not available for external rentals.
