Correction: changes made to Black Box Theatre admissions

In our Oct. 25 issue, we published an article titled, “Theatre department implements reserved seating in Black Box,” which contained incorrect and potentially misleading information regarding changes made to admission to CSC’s Black Box Theatre.

We regret any confusion this mistake has caused our readers and would like to take this opportunity to bring further clarity to changes made to the theatre’s admission process.

In the original article, found on page four of our Oct. 25 issue, we incorrectly stated that, “prior to the show, tickets will still be available for purchase at the Box Office on a first come, first serve basis.”

In fact, the Box Office will not be associated with shows presented at the Black Box Theatre. The only method of reserving admission will be to use the link on the theatre’s website.

As outlined in our original article, free admission to the theatre has been extended beyond CSC students and employees, to the general public. In addition, the theatre has implemented a reservation system for admission to productions.

Those wishing to attend a show at the Black Box should use the following procedure to reserve admission:

– visit the theatre homepage at https://www.csc.edu/vpa/theatre

– left click on the reservation button shown next to listed Black Box Theatre productions

-complete the online form and submit.

Following submittal you will receive an email confirmation. If no reservations are available for the show-time you’ve selected, the confirmation will display that you have been placed on a wait list.

Please keep in mind that reserving admission does not guarantee a specific seat within the theatre.

Seating for performances will begin at 7 p.m. for Thursday through Saturday performances and 1:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees. Those with reservations are asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the performance. Reservations not claimed 10 minutes prior to the production will be released to the wait list.

Questions regarding the process can be directed to theatretix@csc.edu.
