The Box continuing Expenses

The Box is a cross-genre arts space in The Gateway that houses Wasatch Theatre Company, New World Shakespeare, Kallisti Theatre Company, Anthem Theatre Company, Laughing Stock, Salt City Slam, and the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival.

The Box prides itself on being an affordable space for artists of all genres, particularly the performing arts, to showcase their work.

The Box also occasionally co-produces projects with individuals to help them realize their ideas. The Box also has a production arm and has produced pieces such as MATCHSTICK THEORY and THE OPEN SYRUP play series.

The Box’s creative team includes David Bruner, Elise Barnett, Kaltin Kirby, Matthew Oviatt, Bryce Kamryn, RJ Walker, and Jim Martin. 

The Box is located right across from The Gateway TRAX station at 124 South 400 West, in-between Clark Planetarium and Wiseguys.

The Box relies on the generosity of patrons to keep its mission of serving the arts community in tact. Monies donated are used to continue paying a monthly lease at The Gateway, paying for the upkeep of the space (utilities, supplies, other improvements), compensating artists, and developing new projects.

Keeping The Box operational through these difficult times will be beneficial not only to those who call it home, but to the myriad grassroots performing arts companies who struggle to find a platform even in the best of times. When we’re all able to gather together again, we’d love to still be able to give these people and companies a chance to work at The Box.
