Son's evaluation: Grade:
Daughter's evaluation: Black box theatre is really cool. If you are doing an act (show) when they are changing the scene they make the stage all black so you don't see the people changing everything for the next scene. Although they make the stage black for the next scene you can usually still see them swapping everything around. If you are doing a dance show they make the stage black after every dance. All the acts I have been to they were all in Spanish and I don't think there are any classes in English. Grade: 10
Mom's evaluation: My kids haven´t attended any classes here or
seen children´s shows yet, but I have been to an adult production as
well as attend the show put on by my daughter´s dance class which used
the Black Box Theatre space for its yearly show. The shows you see here
depend on what you like, so it´s hard to rate it, however so far what
I´ve seen here is rather good and very creative.
The theatre itself has a very cool urban vibe even though it´s small. The size and black painted bohemian interior only adds to its charm and feeling of a real underground creative space for people who want to think out of the box. Grade: 8.0
Dad's evaluation: I have attended a couple of productions at the Black Box Theater and I have enjoyed them both. The theater is small but cozy. It is conveniently located in the center of Marbella, not far from the paseo and many tapas bars. Grade: 9.0

Mom: Great summer camp. Our 12 year old son joined the summer camp this July 2010. The final show was amazing (Alice in the Mamma Mia Land). They were 30 children all ages by age group. The three main teachers (art, acting, art) are very professional. There is a good group feeling and our son was pleased with it. We were amazed at what he did every day. Very good learning, social experience! Grade:

Mom: The Students of the July 2009 Summer School at Black Box put
on an amazing end of course show. Grease, the musical, was a delight
for all the friends and family to watch. The students aged 5 to 12
worked all month, singing, dancing, designing, reheasing and working
together as a team. The simple set design and lighting placed the focus
on the students and all their hard work. The show was full of energy and
every child enjoyed the lime light. Proud parents could only smile and
applaud at the successful display of four weeks work. Grade: 10
