Welcome to the website of Out Of The Box, a non-professional theatre company based in Lincolnshire in the UK. Set up by a small group of actors and directors with a wide range of professional and amateur experience, the company’s aim is to produce high quality, exciting, thought-provoking and entertaining drama.
The key motivation for all Out of the Box members is the love of drama. We have a passion for what we do and spend much of our spare time creating something we can be proud of. Although we don’t get paid, we aim for the same standards as professional companies. However, unlike commercial theatre companies, we have no salaries to pay, so only need to cover the costs of venue hire and royalties. This gives us much more freedom to select plays for their artistic merit, rather than mass commercial appeal. This also gives our audiences the chance to see plays that would not normally be performed in the region.
We use small venues not only to keep our costs down, but because it gives the audience to get close to the actors and feel the energy of the performance. We also use minimal set and props, so that there no distractions from the performance. This stripped-down, intimate approach gives us the chance to create exciting and unique productions that push the actors and the audience to new levels.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our forthcoming productions. If you would like to find out more about us or you want to get involved, then please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
