Black Box of Englewood Offers Early Bird Registration

Save starting May 15 with sign-ups for September sessions in musical theater, acting, improv and more for kids, teens and adults.

(Courtesy of Black Box Studios) The upcoming 2023-24 season at Black Box of Englewood brings an exciting array of options for kids, teens and adults—all at The Black Box’s new second-floor loft space at 8 East Palisade between Van Brunt and Dean Streets, Englewood, NJ 08731.

In the company’s new home-base space, many favorite and new fall/winter classes will begin in mid-September and are now open for “early bird” registration at www.blackboxpac.com. Offerings include the Teen Musical Theater Workshop, the Kids Musical Theater Workshop, Improv Comedy, the Adult Acting Workshop, Writing Workshop and more soon-to-be-announced programs.

No interested student has ever been turned away for financial reasons!

Professional teaching artists who work in professional theater, film, television and music—some of whom are Black Box alums—work closely with students on accessing complete creative freedom, specific skills and techniques, group dynamics, confidence/poise, and—in most classes—on an actual production for live audiences at the end of each semester. Private lessons for all ages, including New York/New Jersey professionals, are available upon request and at competitive rates.

Black Box also runs popular programs as part of the curriculum and after-school in select area schools and institutions. Currently, Black Box programs are wrapping up the school year at Ma’ayanot, Yeshivat Noam, Yavneh and The Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies.

“… Black Box accommodated my daughter’s request for an all-female production and created a special class. My daughter appreciates that Black Box was the first company to take her seriously as an actress. As a mom, I was happy that my daughter’s religious sensitivities were accommodated while allowing her to hone her craft with excellent mentors and to perform in several high-quality productions,” said Shifra Schapiro of Teaneck.

“I’ve always enjoyed taking classes with Black Box because of how friendly and encouraging the people who run it are. It’s a great place to not only improve my improv and acting skills, but as someone with autism, I find it to be so fun to work on my communication and memorization abilities with folks I trust and respect,” said Jeffrey Lubin of Demarest.

“I have known Matt [Okin, artistic director] and everyone at Black Box since 2011 when I signed up for an extracurricular program they ran, and still run, at Yeshivat Noam Middle School in Paramus. Later, it was at Black Box that I began playing music professionally, and this enabled me to go on to have a successful career as a musician. After all these years, I am proud to be affiliated with The Black Box, and to collaborate with the artists there on a regular basis, ” said Ben Shanblatt of Fair Lawn and Queens.
