Moonbox Productions produces exceptional theatrical experiences that enlighten, empower, and challenge Greater Boston audiences to re-imagine how art creates community. We create inclusive programming that makes all audiences, staff, and community partners feel welcome and celebrated. #CreateCommunity
We believe it is our shared responsibility to make positive change in all of the lives that we touch.
We believe in creating spaces that reflect the diversity of our shared community, both on and off the stage, where under-represented voices, including BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and people living with disabilities feel valued and important.
We believe that accessibility is a human right. We are devoted to providing performances that can be experienced and enjoyed universally, and to incorporating accessibility planning into our production, design, staffing, and budgeting processes from day one.
Moonbox commits to
- Provide a safe, collaborative and respectful workplace
- Implement anti-racist theatre practices
- Promote individuals and organizations that work on behalf of our community through our Non-Profit Partnerships
- Support emerging artists and theatre professionals through our Mentorship Program
- Provide ASL interpretation and audio description for all productions, and regularly offer open and closed captioning.
- We are actively expanding our programming to include tactile integration tours and sensory-friendly performances
- Seek new and innovative ways to engage and give back to our community
- Engage with the broader community of people living with disabilities and other under-represented groups to enrich our networks and make our productions enjoyable for all. We recognize that guidance by and consultation from members and experts of these communities is invaluable in acquiescing knowledge.

There are a number of Moonbox musicals that stand out in my memory, among them Floyd Collins and Cabaret.
Moonbox Productions continues its impressive run of presenting complicated, adult musicals with more polish, professionalism, and nuance than most other companies in the Boston area, even those with more cash and more clout.

Hopes that we were looking at just a few months of disruption dissolved as the virus spread, and we entered this long haul of social distancing, shut-downs and unspeakable losses of life and livelihoods.
