About the Company: Shadow Box Theatre

Once upon a time, way back in the idealistic 1960's, a children's puppet theatre was born. It was the brainchild of an extraordinary woman, Sandra Robbins, who Sandra Robbins and childrendreamed of using light, color and sound to profoundly touch the creative self within each child. Her dream was realized in The Shadow Box Theatre.

For over three decades, this remarkable children's service organization has sustained and built upon her dream. The multi-ethnic troupe and their musical puppet plays have brought love, laughter, joy and affirmation to over two million children. Today, SBT is recognized as one of New York City's major arts resources. It is an award-winning non-profit repertory company dedicated to providing relevant, top-quality children's entertainment.
