The Black Box Theater seats 150.
This is stadium seating. The first level is on floor level and there are 6" stairs going up to the other levels.
Accessible seating is available for purchase online. Though we have more than the required number of seats available for accessibility in the theater, we can still have times when they get tight. We ask that the floor level accessible seats be reserved for those who truly need wheelchair access or are unable to navigate a 6" step. If you are likely to need more than the 10 seats we have available in the proscenium setup, please call us at 480-488-1981 so we can talk through your accessibility needs.
This is also known as a 3/4 thrust. This seating is also stadium seating with the first level being floor level and 6" steps up from there. There are ONLY three rows on each side.
This floorplan has the most accessible seating with nearly 1/3 of the seats on floor level. All chairs are removable so wheelchairs can fit easily.
Desert Foothills Theater performances are held at the Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center, at the Holland Community Center, or perhaps another stage around the area. Most of our regular season performances are at the Fine Arts Center. Within that building are two theaters, the Main Stage and the Black Box Theater.
