Ripple Theatre was created to enrich the cultural fabric of Redlands and the surrounding area: creating immersive, interactive theatre that encourages empathy, broadens perspectives, and ignites imaginations.
Ripple Theatre was founded in 2016 by Tineke Raak under the name "Ripple Theatre Project". Tineke was drawn to Redlands’ deep culture and enthusiastic support of live theatre. In 2017, Ripple changed hands and, under the ownership of Sandi Stark, is now known as Ripple Theatre Redlands. Raised in Redlands, Sandi's training in theatre spans more than 30 years and includes credits in producing, directing, stage managing, acting, choreography and costuming. Having directed close to 70 productions to date, Sandi is passionate about providing excellent theatre and is personally invested in the experience of every audience member who attends a Ripple production.
Ripple Theatre is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Ripple Theatre must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
