Nazareth College Visual Communications Design Program

As part of Nazareth College's Visual Communication Design BFA curriculum, Blackfriars works with the student designers on a 3-week Season Campaign Design Project. At the end of the program, each student pitches their design campaign and Blackfriars chooses one artist to be their Season Designer to help brand the new season with original artwork.


Hourglass Play Reading Series

Originally Rochester Fringe Play Reading Series, Hourglass Play Reading Series was founded in 2010 by Sandi Henschel, Barbara Lobb and Maria Scipione. After a successful first season at the Harley School, Hourglass PRS moved to Blackfriars Theatre for their 2011-2012 Season, where they're currently the in-house play reading series. For more information on the HPRS, visit www.hourglassplays.org.

Join the conversation!

Following the first Sunday performance of every production we hold a talkback with the artists and actors of every show. Stick around after the 2 p.m. performance and share your thoughts, ask the actors questions, get a behind-the-scenes look with the directors and dig deeper into the Blackfriars Theatre process! Each Salon is unique to the specific production and lasts about 10 to 20 minutes. Everyone is welcome!

I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
— Oscar Wilde
