Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post nor am I in any way affiliated with The Sandbox Collective and its staff or the cast of NO FILTER. I am merely a theatre enthusiast myself, who’d like to open doors to anyone who would like to witness the magic of the performing arts.
The Sandbox Collective is “an experimental and multimedia Manila-based performing arts group powered by a curiosity and sensibility to explore and develop new, groundbreaking and cutting-edge theatrical work.” They are relatively new among all the other performing arts group in Manila and I have had the experience of watching Dani Girl last year, which was coincidentally the collective’s first production.
Starting July 25 to August 2 this year, The Sandbox Collective will be showing an original monologue series, NO FILTER: Let’s Talk About ME, a monologue series by Millenials for Millenials about Millenials. It features a series of monologues and multimedia performances to explore anything and everything millenial.
The Sandbox Collective also aims to make great threatre available to a wide range of audiences in the Philippines which is why they came up with a campaign called PLAY IT FORWARD to realize that goal.
Their primary goal is to be able to raise AT LEAST Php 18,000 to provide an opportunity for thirty public school students to watch their upcoming production. To drive the campaign, they are offering donors who donate at least Php 500 a signed poster from the cast of NO FILTER, while donors who donate at least Php 1,000 will get not only a signed poster from the cast, but also two unique passes to a backstage tour prior to their matinee performance on July 26. Very sweet deals for a couple of bucks, don’t you think? 😉
I haven’t finalized the date on when I’ll be seeing the show as their debut weekend is the same weekend I have overtime work (awwwww), but I absolutely can’t wait to see what this show’s about! 😀
For more information about the campaign and how you can send in your donations, you may refer to the infographic below:

just visited their site and learned that they were also responsible for the imaginarium! i wanted to go there but i had other commitments that time. not sure if i can go but i’m willing to donate. it’s a good cause. and i used to be in theater too (and i actually miss it hahaha).
You used to be in theatre? Awesome!
One of my dreams is to become a part of a musical. Sadly, I’m not as talented in singing and acting as I would like to be. Haha XD although one of my friends has encouraged me to go audition before. 😛
I’ve been meaning to read more about the #NoFilter thing as I’ve been seeing it on Instagram for the past few days (I’ve been a fan of Sandbox immediately after seeing Dani Girl). Ahhh this is really an interesting idea! I still haven’t decided on when I’ll catch their show, but I do hope that I get to see it soon! 🙂
Hi there, fellow theater enthusiast!!! <3
I might watch on August 2! I wanna catch it on opening night but I have weekend work that night. 🙁
