Open to actors entering 4th – 6th grades. Out of the Box Productions is an audition-based, community service performance troupe that brings socially relevant theatre into the Brookline Public Schools and the surrounding community. Each year two casts of 4th-6th grade actors travel an original show to all eight Brookline elementary schools, reaching nearly every K-6 student in Brookline. Previous shows include: Tech Message, Dear Failure, The Popularity Pandemic, Express Yourself & Gettin’ Down In The Dump.
This year’s production, FOLLOW THE LEADER – A Look Beyond Leadership begins rehearsals in late August and will be on the road touring to Brookline Elementary Schools and the Boston Children’s Museum in October, 2017.
Our two casts – The Cast of Gizmos & The Cast of Gadgets – played 16 performances on 8 different stages, for over 2,000 different audience members. Our immense gratitude to our hosts – the administrators, teachers and students of the Brookline Public Schools, and the staff of Boston Children’s Museum.
