CRASHBOX'S MISSION: 

Crashbox Theatre Company is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Easton, MD. We are dedicated to the production of quality theatre, the continuing education of performing arts for youth, teens and adults, and to provide beneficial opportunities in the performing arts, 

THE FORMATION OF CRASHBOX:  

In 2012, I saw the need for more performing arts opportunities for students in the community—not just the ones that I worked with in the school program. To meet this need, I formed a non-profit theatre group for youth and teens called Crashbox Theatre. Crashbox focuses on theatre opportunities for the youth in our community. By having a community theatre organization that gives quality experiences, I can reach so many more individuals than just those who I work with in the schools.  To this day, we have reached learners from different schools, different counties, and even different states that have benefited and expanded their experiences in the arts.
