The Sapphire is #PerformingArtsWithPurpose
We take theatrical tools, techniques and talents and apply them directly to community needs, wherever they may be. We are totally mobile, bringing theatre to the people rather than people to the theatre. We reach out to non-traditional theatre audiences, young professionals, cultural progressives, and those with limited access to performing arts. We offer innovative Performances, customized Programs and professional Production Services – The Sapphire is the only applied theatre company offering this depth and scope of services in Indiana.

The Sapphire Theatre Company is committed to a diverse and equitable arts and cultural community in Indianapolis. We affirm, advocate and echo the Equity Statement of the Arts Council of Indianapolis, and join their commitment to “working with the arts and cultural community to cultivate a sector that serves, celebrates, and values every resident of Indianapolis. We envision a city where engagement in the arts is not pre-determined by socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.”
