Touring productions for actors in Grades 4 – 6

By Audition Only

Open to actors entering 4th – 6th grade, Out of the Box Productions is an audition-based, touring performance troupe that brings theater-for-social-change into the Brookline Public Schools and the surrounding community. Each year two casts of actors travel an original show to all eight Brookline elementary schools, reaching nearly every K–6 student in Brookline.

In recent years Out of the Box Productions has explored Environmental SustainabilityIntegrity, Leadership, Popularity, and Social Activism. This year’s show – TECH MESSAGEtackles the benefits and caveats of our relationship with the gadgets, gizmos, and screens that are rapidly becoming ubiquitous in our society. While these new technologies provide us with unprecedented resources and security, they also allow us to disconnect from the real world. When the virtual world is just as appealing and complex as the real world, how plugged in do you really want to be?

Our company of twenty was on the road performing throughout October and early November 2022. We visited 9 different schools in Brookline and Boston and performed for over 3,000 audience members.

Bravo to the cast and crew!
