Proscenium Theatre


April 22, 4:12 pm

Location: Proscenium Theatre

A group of actors perform on a stage with a fanciful and distorted set behind them.


The Proscenium Theatre, situated in the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, seats approximately 275 and is home to UMBC Theatre and Dance productions, as well as guest artist performances, lectures, and special events. The theatre features an expansive stage, orchestra and balcony seating, and box seats. The Proscenium Theatre is ADA accessible.


Plan Your Visit

The Proscenium Theatre is located in UMBC’s Performing Arts and Humanities Building, easily recognized by its shiny stainless steel façade with a distinctive “thumbprint,” and the entrance to the theatre is near the “arches” that are visible from the parking area.



UMBC is easy to visit, and is about 15 minutes from the Inner Harbor area and about 25 minutes from the Washington Beltway. We’re just off I-95 and I-695 with plenty of free parking.


• If you use Apple Maps, search for UMBC Parking Lot 8A. If you’re using Google Maps, search for UMBC Lot 8. [Note: Apple Maps may say Lot 8 is closed, but it’s not!]


• From I-95 between Baltimore and Washington, take Exit 47B and follow signs to Catonsville and UMBC. At the second traffic circle, go 3/4 the way around to join the inner loop of Hilltop Circle. At the first traffic light, turn right onto Hilltop Road (with the PAHB on your right), and then an immediate left into Parking Lot 8.


• From I-695, take Exit 12C, Wilkens Avenue west, and at the first traffic circle go 3/4 the way around to turn onto Hilltop Road. At the traffic light, go straight through Hilltop Circle, and then take an immediate left into Parking Lot 8.


Evening and weekend parking is available in Lot 8, adjacent to UMBC’s Performing Arts and Humanities Building, where the Proscenium Theatre is located.


UMBC is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for all students, staff, and visitors. If you would like to request a disability-based accommodation on site or have questions about the Proscenium Theatre, please contact us at pahboom@umbc.edu.
