Crashbox Theater Company: Crashbox met in the Fall of 2008 at the Atlantic Acting School Conservatory. For two and half years, we were lucky enough to study in NYC under the guidance of the remarkable and inspiring teachers at the Atlantic. During this time, we went from being strangers to being a creative family, now known as Crashbox.
Crashbox strives to be a vibrant part of the theater world and contribute to its growth, producing theater that ignites the soul and creates an ongoing dialogue with our audiences. Our mission: To examine the beautiful human struggle for meaning through all its awkward and broken fragments.
