Don Muir &
Margaret Schubbe

Meet Shadowbox Live Donors Don Muir & Margaret Schubbe! Don, grew up in Michigan and has a Masters in Engineering from U of M. Margaret grew up in Minnesota. Both met here in Columbus in the 70’s working for Ashland Chemical Company. Now, both are retired—and loving it!

Don and Margaret have been attending Shadowbox Live shows for about 15 years accompanied by friends, neighbors and family. They love introducing new people to us as they feel Shadowbox is “the best ticket in town!”

Don and Margaret contribute to a number of other organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, Planned Parenthood, MidOhio Food Bank, The Open Shelter, NPR, Public Citizen and Common Cause but have chosen Shadowbox Live as their exclusive arts recipient because they are “so impressed with the talent and dedication Shadowbox members have that it makes [us] want to help with their continued success.”

When asked to share their favorite Shadowbox Live memory, Don and Margaret thought of many, but they said “the one that thrilled us the most was both of us being drawn up on the stage by Stacie to join the performers and other fans in singing “With A Little Help from My Friends” the very first time we saw Back to the Garden.” Margaret said, “Don was jumping up and down with the music and it was five days before he was scheduled for hip replacement surgery. Unforgettable.”

We recognize Don and Margaret this month because of their dedication and generosity to our cause. To join them in becoming a Shadowbox Live Donor, please contact Edelyn “Eddy” Parker at

Stacie Boord

For over 20 years, Shadowbox LIVE has produced world-class performances, spanning the artistic spectrum from sketch comedy, rock ‘n ‘roll and musicals to original rock operas, drama, dance theater and new media, always putting its emphasis on the unparalleled live experience. It is now our pleasure to be able to apply our experience of the arts and the business of theater to our educational outreach efforts through the Shadowbox Academy.

Our continued success and ability to embark on new endeavors is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.

In addition to making a critical impact on our weekly “bottom line,” your donation plays a big role in continuing to support the transition into our Brewery District home, including the build out of our state of the art rehearsal space! This project is a major step forward for Shadowbox Live as well as the facilities we will share with the Shadowbox Academy students. We are very excited – and grateful – to take that step with you.
