The Black Box Theater is meant to be an up-close and personal” audiophile” experience for the performer and the audience The intent of the theater is to accommodate performances with high artistic value that fit well in the venue and overlay nicely with the other premiere performance venues in the region. We will focus our booking (but not limit it to) bluegrass, blues, jazz, folk, singer songwriters, poets, storytelling, small classical ensemble, single set drama, spoken word and small recitals. Shows with educational value and some connection to regional culture will be favored.
The black-box theater at SCAC will feature purposeful, simple design. We believe this theater has a distinct niche in the region. Although the design and architecture will be simple,the sound system and lighting will be state of the art. The theater will be a production ready and media friendly venue with “tight sonics” and minimized ambient sound (minimal slap back/sound reflection). This will make live streaming, live recording, live video production and pod casting easily facilitated for most shows in the venue. The current (growing) trend of on- demand, digital entertainment access has been taken into great consideration in our approach. We have intentionally limited this venue to 200 seats to maintain an intimate up close listening environment.
Secondary purpose:We will also have some other events based on a rental business model that will not be included in the ticket in show line up. This space will also be used for teaching audio and video production.

Color + Sound is a tactile art installation exhibit that will feature the music of Dave Crenshaw and the art of Lindsay Dyess, Katlyn Coley, Bethany Moody, Jimmy Howard, and Stan Copeland.
The idea for this art exhibit came to life after curator and artist Lindsay Dyess listened to Crenshaw’s album, Color + Sound. She wanted to explore that idea further by creating a sensory based art exhibit where people could explore art installations using multi-sensory stimuli to enhance their understanding of art. The exhibit is a modern art installation with an emphasis on accessibility to all people. This exhibit encourages people to touch, explore and immerse themselves in the installations to get a better understand of the art form.
Each exhibiting artist has experience in different mediums which enhances the uniqueness of each installation. The artists were randomly assigned a different color to use within their work and artists were encouraged to use a variety of textures and items in their work that are interactive and could be inclusive to blind and deaf visitors. Gallery visitors are encouraged to touch, explore, walk through, sit under, stand in the middle of-become part of the work. Art is not just for the sighted, it should be available and accessible for anyone to appreciate.
An evening of classic country music as innovated by the one and only Patsy Cline and performed by the Sassy Brown Band featuring Lauren Brown on vocals and Glen Butts on guitar leading a band of seasoned musicians.
Patsy Cline was a country music icon in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. She managed to hit the pop music charts and was one of the most influential and successful singers in American music history before her sudden death in a tragic plane crash at age 30.
