An intimate 2,000-square-foot, black-box performance space dedicated to new works, The Costume Shop is a versatile venue that houses an eclectic lineup of performances: from innovative A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program productions, to eye-catching work by local artists and performing arts companies.

Located just across Market Street from Civic Center's UN Plaza in the heart of San Francisco's lively Central Market arts neighborhood, The Costume Shop officially opened its doors at 1117 Market Street in fall 2011 as part of 24 Days of Central Market Arts.

Thanks to funding from grants from the San Francisco Neighborhood Arts Collaborative and The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, A.C.T. is able provide no-cost rehearsal and performance space to select local arts organizations.
