Our Mission

Sandbox Theatre is driven by the collaborative spirit to create new and newly-imagined performance artworks, and to foster the development of artists.

 

The continued pursuit of theatrical innovation through ensemble creation ensures that artists and audiences are pushing themselves to be better and to know more. Sandbox’s mission to foster the development of artists celebrates the individual’s abilities while asking them to take on new challenges, wear new hats, learn new skills.

“If you never try to do something you absolutely can’t do, then you’ll only do what everybody else can.”

Sandbox provides both a framework of support as well as encouragement to leap without nets. Since our inception, Sandbox has employed over 150 Minneapolis-St. Paul performers, designers, costumers, filmmakers and visual artists, crossing interdisciplinary borders and stretching the limits of what live performance can be.
