The Sound Company is an ensemble-based theatre company that uses performance as a catalyst to spark a community conversation.

We create intentional gatherings where artists and audiences can learn and grow together. We value interdisciplinary collaboration and experimentation with new artistic forms and frames.


The Sound Company was founded in 2021 by Co-Producing Artistic Directors Jess Hughes and Sean Ryan Naughton. After graduating from The Ohio State University with their MFAs in acting with an emphasis on the creation of new works, they joined forces to explore their shared commitment to rigorous, collaborative, and multidisciplinary theatre and performance art.
