Mission: Perisphere Theater produces plays that examine personal and collective history and the notion of history itself.

Vision: 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 to make amends for historical injustice.
  • Respect: We always show the utmost respect for our collaborators and our audience, and we refuse to allow harassment, disparagement, or objectification in connection with our productions or operations.
