Lunchbox Theatre is recognized as one of the most successful noon hour theatre companies in the world. From a foundation of one-act plays, we’re committed to creating and performing high quality theatrical works.

Lunchbox Theatre delivers a unique experience to its audience – upbeat performances in an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. Patrons are encouraged to enjoy the play while you eat your lunch! This audience-friendly approach makes Lunchbox Theatre an ideal place to introduce theatre to new audiences, young and old.

A one-act play is a short play that takes place in one act consisting of one or more scenes. The "one-act" is often referred to as the "short story" of plays because the story is told in a concise and creatively efficient manner. One-act plays, as with full length plays, come in all genres: comedies, dramas and musicals. At Lunchbox Theatre we program mainly comedies and musicals as we provide a noon-time oasis for our busy audience members.
