Mission:

Inspired by Shakespeare, we create and strengthen community by bringing audiences and theater artists together to celebrate stories about our collective humanity.

We envision a community where generations are increasingly passionate and knowledgeable about Shakespeare and Live theater, a community that engages in active discussion about language and art and reaches for passion, connection, and empowerment.

Values:

Bold
We believe in taking risks, charting new territory, and demanding a fearless aesthetic.

Transparent
We commit to clear communication and responsiveness to inquiry in all that we do, from the artistic process and planning to financial management, governance, and operations.

Responsible
We ensure a balance between the financial stability of the organization and artistic risk.

Passionate
We are most passionate about our art, our community, and Shakespeare.

Inclusive
We strive to include the breadth and diversity of our community in our art and organization.
