Press Release:

That’s right, folks! We’re back and BoxFest Detroit 2015 is happening! We’re really excited to be hosted by Planet Ant Theatre, Fridays and Saturdays, August 21 – 29. This is Molly McMahon, Artistic Director, excitedly typing away the good news.

Last year we regrouped and with more resources, we’re looking forward to our 2015 festival. We’ve gotten financial support from some generous people including Jerry Belanger and Park Bar Detroit, and Kennikki Jones-Jones and Edmund Alyn Jones and their company, Dramatically Richer Productions. We are so grateful for their support and want to shout our thanks from the rooftops. If you see these folks around town, give them a hug, a high five, or just say “You’re awesome!” to them. They really deserve it.

But wait, there’s more! We’re also adding a new face to the producing team! Amanda Ewing, a fantastic director in the Detroit area and past BFD director, has joined us as a producer this year. She will be a great asset to the festival and a great resource for newer directors looking for guidance.

We’re really looking forward to returning to Planet Ant Theatre where our 2005 – 2007 festivals were held. They have always been one of our biggest supporters and allies and we are overjoyed that they are hosting us at their space in the lovely City of Hamtramck.

Right now, we’re accepting submissions from directors, playwrights, and actors. Would you like to submit for this year’s festival? Just click on the Participate tab above for more information! We’d love to have you join us this year!
