Pandora Productions has been telling the stories of the LGBTQ+ community for over 25 years. Born from a small, crazy idea of three artists who wanted to create a musical based on the myth of Pandora, the company has grown to be a shining star in the Louisville arts firmament. Performing a 5 show mainstage season in the Henry Clay Theatre, the company presents bold, cutting edge, award winning musicals, dramas and comedies as well as hosted two national new play competitions. The company celebrates local, regional and national playwrights writing on LGBTQ+ themes with our PlayDates with Pandora series and brand new Intersections project. Under the leadership of the company’s long time Producing Artistic Director, Michael J. Drury, the company has enjoyed fast growth, artistic achievement and prominence in Louisville and nationally.

On a plantation during the Civil War, a mystical tree stretches toward Heaven.
