Welcome to Blackfriars Theatre
Blackfriars invites you to our intimate theatre located in
Rochester's "Theatre Row" along Main St. We are now in our 66th season
of providing quality theatrical entertainment to the Greater Monroe
County and Finger Lakes region. Our location.
Blackfriars Theatre produces 7 productions each year (6 per season, and 1 special summer show). Our theatrical season starts each fall and runs through May. Our committed group of performers, technicians and volunteers are proud to bring live entertainment in the form of dramatic and musical productions to our local community in western New York.
Blackfriars Theatre is a mid-sized professional theatre that has
entertained audiences for over 60 years in downtown Rochester, New York. Our
mission has been to provide the best possible showcase for actors and
actresses, theater artists and technicians who have chosen to make
Rochester their home. Many of our family have moved on to acting and
technical roles in regional theatre, Broadway, movies and television -
a testament to the training Blackfriars provides.
