Black Box Theatre in
the Hudson Valley
DENIZEN Theatre is dedicated to providing intimate live theatre to members of the Hudson Valley & beyond! Neighbor to the Catskills, our black box theatre in New Paltz, NY is proud to explore what it means to be human in all its duality and complexity. Our theatre is a non-profit arts organization located at Water Street Market. With support from our Hudson Valley patrons, we're able to host cutting edge, thought provoking plays in an intimate space. We believe that the performing arts inspire us to think creatively and bring out the actor in all of us. To learn more about the black box theatre plays we have planned for this season, check out our '19/'20 Winter Season.
Hudson Valley Students
DENIZEN Theatre is dedicated to fostering the next generation of theatre-goers. It's a top priority for us to give young professionals a place to see local performing arts at a fair price. By pricing our student tickets at $5, we allow students to experience the transformative magic of professional live theatre at an affordable price. Students who attend SUNY New Paltz & other universities in the Hudson Valley who are interested in an internship or just looking to volunteer their time with a non-profit can check out our opportunities page.
