To provide a theater experience that gives audiences a greater appreciation of history and of those who are often left out of its retelling.
Artistic excellence: We pursue the highest possible theatrical quality so we can engage our audience intellectually and emotionally.
Diversity: We make equitable decisions about the plays we choose to produce and the people we choose to hire and elevate.
Antiracism: We actively seek to provide opportunities for BIPOC theater artists, recognizing the need to not only eliminate racial barriers to participation but also make amends for historical injustice.
