boots on the ground theater was born out of a passion for storytelling, history, and the creative process. Founder Bonnie Grice developed a great love for the creative arts over the course of her 30+ years as a radio host interviewing artists of all kinds. While getting to stretch her creative muscles on air in radio and television, it was theater that has always had a special place in her heart.
After performing in numerous community theater productions in the East End of Long Island, Bonnie decided to jump into the theater world with both boots. boots on the ground theater was established in 2016 with a focus on exploring historical and contemporary stories through the unique perspective of Long Island’s East End.
