Northeast Arc’s Black Box Theater Project, located at Arcworks Community Art Center, 22 Foster Street in Peabody, will benefit the whole community. With the help of local partners, we’ll renovate existing space that will provide employment opportunities for local actors, musicians, set builders, ticket sellers and concessions workers. The space will provide educational and recreational opportunities for as many as 7,800 youth annually.
The theater will become an anchor in the city’s downtown cultural district. The addition of performing arts to the Art Center will complement existing visual arts activities. Revenue from space rental will ensure long-term sustainability of the Center.
