Peabody’s Black Box Theater is finally open after a year of hard work and dedication by Northeast Arc and the City of Peabody! The Black Box is located within the Arcworks Community Art Center at 22 Foster St in Peabody. Northeast Arc helps people with disabilities become participants in the local community, and the hope is the Black Box Theater will create an inclusive community that will be a cultural destination in the City of Peabody and help strengthen the creative economy.

“I think about the talent we have in the city and locally that are going to be performing and entertaining, from our singers to plays to improv; just all kinds of people. They’re just going to be doing some wonderful things.” – Mayor Bettencourt
