Sandbox Student Productions is a student-led initiative with a mission of producing evocative theatre to illuminate, facilitate discussions, and fundraise for crucial social justice issues.
We believe in the fundamental skills and learning opportunities that come from students creating unique art, with opportunities to act, design, direct, administer, and write. Our vision is to cre
ate a world filled with equality, understanding, and respect of all individual's fundamental rights, with theatre playing a vital role in the facilitation of progress. Our company promotes student empowerment by assisting students to produce work for which they have a passion. We want to create stronger, well-prepared artists, who are capable of advocating and communicating through theatre. We believe in the power theatre has to produce empathy in audience members, actors, and creators.
TechTonic is a student-run technical theatre company that focuses on skills in design and technology. We are a resource for designers and technical artists to learn, grow, and showcase their designs. TechTonic provides a place for new students to learn while also connecting designers with opportunities to work. TechTonic hosts two showcases a semester, giving students the ability to submit and display their work for an audience. Each showcase has a presentation followed by a gallery walk, where the audience is encouraged to engage with the designers and their work.
