Based in Tamworth, Staffordshire, UK 
we are a not-for-profit group 
for anyone who would like 
have fun, 
improve their self-confidence 
and communication skills. 
We work towards a live performance or short film, 
which we share with family and the local community.

The company was founded in 1998 to tour the one-woman play Against the Wind by Therese Collins, 
which one of our actors had originally played for Pentabus and New Perspectives rural touring theatres.

In 2000 Shoebox became an unincorporated association run by its members. 
In 2008, it was registered at Companies House as a not-for-profit community interest company
 with member-directors who continue to manage the company on a voluntary basis. 
There are currently seven directors, three of whom are professional performers.
