Founding Executive and Artistic Director
Sandra Robbins
Sandra (she/her) is the founding Artistic/Executive Director of The Shadow Box Theatre. For more than half a century, her dedication and love of children, as well as her tenacious awareness that children are our future, has driven her to keep SBT alive and vital. Originally a modern dancer, her love of movement was how she expected to dedicate her life. To make a living, she also became an early childhood educator. However, her marriage and three wonderful children made her dance career take a backseat. Life unfolded in unexpected ways and while teaching in a community program she created a show to earn funds for the program. Out of this community project The Shadow Box Theatre was born.
