Blush Theatre Company strives to multiply local opportunities for creative growth and theatrical
engagement as a way of expanding our concept of community.
Blush Theater Company History
The Blush Theater Company began in 2018 as group of people brought together by the Highland Blush
space and it’s proprietor, Damian Sanderson. We were interested in bringing a special theater
experience to our small town, a town with a big history of the arts, including theater. What was missing,
we saw, was an opportunity for small theater productions in an intimate space, where actors and
directors have a smaller commitment than the big production done in our local community theater. We
envisioned a place that offered something different, to compliment the dramatic offerings our
community, someplace where new performers could try a new thing with a small commitment. We
wanted to offer a special place for local playwrights to share their works. Towards this end we have
made two productions the centerpiece of our year; The fall dinner theater and the spring Festival of
Short Plays for a Small Stage. In the spring of 2020 we formalized our organization by putting together a
Board of Directors, developing bylaws and a mission statement. We are in the process of becoming an
official nonprofit organization in the state of Michigan.
