Kranzberg Arts Center
The Kranzberg Arts Center is located in the Big Brothers Big Sisters building at 501 N. Grand. The Kranzberg Arts Center consists of three distinct spaces: a black box theater, a studio performance space and a gallery and education center for Craft Alliance. The black box and studio theaters are managed by Grand Center, Inc.
The Black Box is a fully equipped theater which can seat up to 100 people depending on the set design. It currently serves as the home to three local theater companies: HotCity Theatre, Muddy Waters Theatre Company and Upstream Theater. When not being used by one of the theater companies, the black box is available for rent on a weekly basis.
The Studio is a beautiful room that seats 80 people in a cabaret-style setting and is equipped with a piano, theatrical lights, professional sound and projection equipment. This multi-purpose room is used most frequently for intimate concerts, but has also been used to screen films, host private parties and corporate events. The Studio is available for rent on a day, night or week basis.
