Central Square Theater, built in 2008, is located at on Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, two blocks from the Red Line’s Central Square T station. The mainstage is a black box that seats up to 180, depending on the configuration.
The mainstage is typically only available on dark nights (Sunday through Wednesday). However, we are currently accepting proposals for longer rentals, including productions with multi-week runs, for June 2015. Availability of the studio varies. Please contact us for more information.
Seating can be arranged in proscenium, corner, thrust, traverse, or area configurations. Re-arranging of the current configuration is only available in certain circumstances and for an additional fee. Please contact us to find out which configuration will be in use for a specific date.
For public performances, we provide a house manager and concessions associate. We will sell concessions before the performance and at intermission (if applicable), including wine, beer, coffee, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks. The mainstage and studio share a lobby.
