Located in the beautiful, (100-year-old), Old Mills Winery building, CalCap Studios Black Box Theatre is a not-for-profit and wonderfully versatile space. Sacramento's newest live performing arts venue provides a more intimate playing space for performers and audience members alike without neglecting any of the technology available in a larger theater. With seating for up to 65 patrons, the Black Box at CalCap Studios is an interesting, one-of-a-kind space in which to watch and produce theatre, ranging from award-winning and well-reviewed solo shows to small character-driven plays as well as twice-monthly performances by its own, newly formed Improv group, The Cordova Players.
The versatility of CalCap Studios Black Box Theatre gives actors and directors absolute artistic freedom. With our flexible seating arrangements, each production will have a customized actor-audience relationship, where audiences can expect a wide range of theatrical experiences.
CalCap Studios also offers acting classes for adults and children, voice, piano, and violin lessons for all ages, and filmmaker workshops taught by experienced film people, all at a cost below market price.

With ample parking and minutes from the I-50 exit at Bradshaw, CalCap Studios is just what the doctor ordered as we move away from the year of lockdowns and minimal arts.
