Most productions and performances held in the Black Box Theatre or the Performing Arts and Humanities Building Theatre require an admission charge (as indicated by their event listing), while lectures, film screenings and panel discussions are typically free. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event from the Box Office on the first floor of the building, beginning 45 minutes prior to the production. Ticket purchases made at the door are cash only. ATM’s are located in the University Center and The Commons (see map). Tickets purchased via MissionTix should be printed prior to arrival on campus.
For discounted pricing at the door, students and UMBC community members should bring appropriate ID.
All ages are permitted to productions, but guests should be aware of events listed as for mature audiences only.
For evening and weekend events in the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, please park in Lot 8, adjacent to the building, disregarding the permit signs. To reach Lot 8, proceed either way around Hilltop Circle until you reach Hilltop Road, and then take Hilltop Road toward campus. Take an immediate left into Lot 8 and park.
