Facilitating dynamic voices in telling unique stories and offering cutting edge educational opportunities in an inclusive and accessible environment.
Squeaky Wheel Theatre Group was created with the hope of making an inclusive and accepting artistic environment that is unafraid to be loud, push boundaries, and challenge both artists and audiences alike. We feel that theatre and theatre education should be accessible to everyone and strive to keep ticket and workshop prices at a level that both allows us to continue our work while not making attendance an undue hardship.
