Sandbox Play Festival


Sandbox Play Festival 2015

Performances are at Gennitti’s (on Main St. in downtown Northville)


Tipping Point Theatre is thrilled to be part of the “Arts & Acts: A Made in Michigan Festival”, taking place in downtown Northville this summer.


Friday, June 19 & Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 8:00pm

Tickets are $15 in advance, and $20 at the door

For over 20 years, Northville has hosted an annual juried art show, “Art in the Sun” and for the sixth year in a row Tipping Point Theatre will be joining the fun for our annual playwriting competition as part of the festival. We are excited to be part of this Northville summer art extravaganza. The spirit behind the festival is to encourage and increase exposure for Michigan theatre artists. Tipping Point will also be searching for actors and directors that are looking for opportunities to “get in the sand” and work on creating new theatre. This is an excellent opportunity for actors, directors, and playwrights looking to showcase their work.
