The Irondale Ensemble Project is as close as we come these days to the Elizabethan acting companies that once presented Shakespeare’s plays to the Earl of Leicester, Sir Francis Drake and the Virgin Queen of England. ...What is on offer is the miracle of the word made flesh. I wish you joy in it.” —Lewis Lapham, editor of Lapham’s Quarterly

TA Jam Session (if by "jam," you mean to smoosh various art forms into a multi-fruited jelly to spread on toast or muffins).

The Sandbox Theatre Company has received a very generous grant so that artists of ALL disciplines can not only meet each other, but be inspired by the new work originating from vastly different minds! How, cool, right? Welcome to a night of music, dance, visual art, drama, and everything in between!

Join us for an interactive party/concert/evening of art and celebration! Bring business cards, pics of your work, a monologue you wrote…but don’t be intimidated! We’re hanging Christmas lights and serving a very hippie offering of iced teas and basically rockin’ out…this is for US to meet US in hopes that one day we will create some pretty awesome art together.

Featuring performances by Elana Read, Mike Doyle (of Michael Dylan and the Sleepwalkers), Gina’s Picture Show and many more!

PLUS, if you would like to share your art (of ANY discipline) please contact producer Anna Trumbo at
