Boxes (Gilbert)

Please join us for a unique drama that tackles expectations, empathy, and embracing individuality - "Boxes" performed by our Gilbert Theater Production students. 

Imagine a world where every teen comes of age by receiving an empty box. Coping with pressures and expectations from others, Jack is curious when he receives his box as a birthday present. His confusion about the cubed oddity quickly turns to concern when his family, friends, and teachers begin filling his box with their expectations for him. Ultimately, Jack comes to understand that his box is filled, not with other people’s expectations for him, but with their hopes, so that he can create his own goals and dreams.

Students, families, and friends are welcome to attend! 

There will be 2 performances:

Thursday, April 26th from 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Friday, April 27th from 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Check back for more details coming soon!
