About Us

For more than 25 years, Pandora Productions has been the only theatre company in the Louisville Metro area and most of Kentucky exclusively dedicated and most trusted to tell the stories of the LGBTQ+ communities.
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.

Claire, a recent divorcee and a lost soul wrestling her identity, secures a new job in Ottawa which brings new opportunities and a chance to truly find herself - albeit in a porta-potty. With a little help from matchmaker Michelle, Claire soon falls in love with Jane, a feisty Wiccan. Eventually, Claire rediscovers her Judaism and finds the courage to come out to her teenage son David, her ex-husband Garth, and her homophobic Jewish mother. More than a story of love for family and gay rights, it's a timely culture-shifting show that opens hearts & minds.
