Max & Louie Productions
Max & Louie Productions is a small, non-profit theatre company based in St. Louis, Missouri. It was created by the artists for the artists in order to give them the freedom and ability to create without commercial and political influences. It is comprised of professionals and volunteers, officers and directors. It is theatre at its best.
Max & Louie Productions enhances lives through the arts by presenting bold, brave St. Louis Premiere plays that entertain and challenge, bringing artists and audiences together in a shared experience that illuminates life through joy, wonder, laughter and truth.
In the summer of 2009 actress Stellie Siteman and director Sydnie Grosberg Ronga, both natives of St. Louis, examined the local theatre scene. After 40+ shared years of working in theatrical arts and education, they realized what a new theatre company could bring to the St. Louis arts community in this time of economic turndown. Throughout their research, they repeatedly discovered productions they longed to premiere in the St. Louis community; each tackling a bold issue while incorporating humor. Comedy and wit, they were convinced, were instrumental in allowing audiences to view and engage with important issues in an accessible manner. Humor allowed guards to be let down and minds to be opened. With that in mind, they formed Max & Louie Productions and decided that laughter would be the key to their productions. The urgent need in today’s world for laughter and joy is compelling.
