ABOUT STUDIO PLAYERS

Studio Players, an unconventional black box theatre experience, was created in 2012 as a unique alternative to the main stage productions at Sheboygan Theatre Company (STC). What does black box theatre mean? Black box theatre is like a blank canvas for performances—it's a simple, adaptable space where actors and audiences can get up close and personal for a more intimate and flexible show experience.

 

Studio Players strives to offer content that is thought-provoking, engaging, and entertaining while welcoming a broad range of experience levels. Works containing adult themes, contemporary issues, and/or language are explored within our productions.

Taking advantage of the experience and talent of some of STC’s most dedicated volunteers, Studio Players launched three sold-out productions in the Fall and Winter of 2012 and the Spring of 2013. Studio Players expanded its season to include a Summer production in 2013, creating a four-production season featuring two dramas and two comedies.

Since then, Studio Players has staged a variety of productions in venues around Sheboygan, and continues to engage audiences in distinctive and unexpected ways.
