A distinctive hand-painted wooden sign featuring the face of the bulldog for which the venue was named marks this addition to the Albuquerque theatre scene. A not-for-profit organization, "Aux Dog" has stadium seating for 80 in the theatre and rotating art exhibits in the lobby (the building was a well-known art gallery for many years prior to its new incarnation). Aux Dog's schedule is always packed with shows so there are few dark weekends. In addition to producing their own plays, they host other performance troupes in the space. Many performances are followed by a late night comedy improv set.
As tiny as its name suggests, The Box specializes in children's plays and in improv, including playing host to an improv festival. It is home to two resident theater companies, the Cardboard Playhouse Productions for kids, and Blackout Theatre Company, a talented ensemble who devise their own works and put their unique stamp on established ones. Finally, The Box offers week-long summer camps where kids can learn acting for the stage or camera, improv skills, or film production. The theater's central location lends itself to easy access to the Railrunner train, buses, and pre- or post-theater dining and drinking.
