Fay Abrams founded her first crafts gallery in Old Town in 1974 as a showcase for local artists with a flair for taking ideas and materials far beyond the confines of standard application. They have shaped, forged, hammered and woven stone, glass, wood, fabric, clay, and other materials into objects that are as beautiful and sometimes provocative; as they are one-of-a-kind. Owners Liz Dineen and Jennifer Rohrig will answer your questions about each object with the kind of knowledge, pride and enthusiasm that is normally reserved for a parent discussing her child.
As tiny as its name suggests, The Box specializes in children's plays and in improv, including playing host to an improv festival. It is home to two resident theater companies, the Cardboard Playhouse Productions for kids, and Blackout Theatre Company, a talented ensemble who devise their own works and put their unique stamp on established ones. Finally, The Box offers week-long summer camps where kids can learn acting for the stage or camera, improv skills, or film production. The theater's central location lends itself to easy access to the Railrunner train, buses, and pre- or post-theater dining and drinking.
