The Sanctuary Theatre, Inc. opened its door in 1984 in the old sanctuary of Calvary United Methodist Church. Ironically, the space that we created still bears our name, even though we have moved on, proving brick and a grid lasts longer than a troupe.
Nevertheless, we produced over 25 shows in the old sanctuary of Calvary that we converted into a theater space. Since leaving there, we have continued to produce. In 2007 we produced Tawfig al Hakim’s THE FATE OF A COCKROACH.
Then, in 2011, we initiated Sanctuary’s Performing Knowledge Project, that combined our love of the theatrical and our love of the educational, fusing literature with performance, creating a unique interdisciplinary styles that continues to emerge and delight.
