We had 754 people in our audiences!
We have 108 auditionees and have worked with 76 different artists with an approximate DEI* ratio of 36%.

*Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This is a conceptual framework that aims to promote the fair treatment and full participation of all people, especially in the workplace, including populations who have historically been under-represented or subject to discrimination because of their background, identity, disability, etc.
We are the catalyst for a thousand tales, blazing a path for stories people want to see with the messages our communities need to hear.
To create a space where:
Seeing a show is as natural, affordable, and accessible as seeing a movie.
Recruited talent is treated with respect, shown appreciation, and provided transparency of compensation, empowering them in future pursuits.
Thought-provoking performances ignite impactful conversations and lasting change.
WHO WE ARE
We are dedicated to breaking free of the classic boundaries between community and professional theatres. We strive to unite the inclusivity, heart, and affordability of community theatre and the boldness, innovation, and quality of professional productions. Our goal is to become a culture of our own, prioritizing the communities in which we perform, the talent that brings the work to life, and the conversations our work ignites.
By partnering with, instead of working against, other theatres, we engage in a strong creative front to strengthen ourselves and those around us. To this end, we collaborate with other like-minded artists, organizations, and theatres to create a variety of compelling performances. We want our audiences to be on their toes in terms of content, themes, and genres, but never doubt the quality of a performance.
We actively seek stories that challenge our ways of thinking, elevate our understanding of the human condition, and elicit passionate reactions. While these themes exist in stories across the past and present, we also have a responsibility to the future. Therefore, we firmly believe in nurturing new stories and blazing trails to production opportunities. Art comes in all colors, shapes, and sizes and we believe our seasons should reflect that.
By unraveling tough questions, examining the answers we find, and valuing the beliefs and perspectives of those around us, we break free from the stifling definitions of what theatre has been and focus instead on what theatre can become.
