The Sandbox Play Festival is a 10 minute play competition that highlights Michigan artists who may not have an outlet for their work otherwise. Now in it's ninth year, Sandbox has continued growing with over 100 entries into the competition this year. Tipping Point has moved its festival from being featured at Northville's Arts and Acts to having its own week at the theatre during the month of October. Five plays will be featured and the audience will vote on their favorite in the series. We hope you will join us for this unique experience.

Since the program started over 500 ten-minute plays have been submitted, 35 new plays have been performed, and 90 new actors and over 30 new directors have participated in the shows.
