square product theatre was founded in 2006 with an eye toward providing affordable, inclusive, professional theatre to the Boulder community. Now in our 12th Season, we have presented 16 World Premieres and 11 Regional Premieres of new, innovative performance work, and have showcased our work in Denver, Austin, & Chicago, in addition to our home base of Boulder, Colorado. We love collaborating to create and present new, challenging, and thought-provoking work. We hope you'll check us out.
