Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision to inspire & empower young people to achieve an enriched and rewarding
life, was developed through our organization values where we believe:
Every child should have the opportunity to reach their potential.
Theatre arts nurtures creativity and self-expression.
The inclusion of the arts is vital to the development of a healthy community.
In providing artistic & educational integrity.
The quality of our product is dependent on the quality of our process.

Our goals are to:
Provide young people an avenue to realize their potential.
Provide a quality theatre experience for our community.
Provide professional opportunities for theatre artists.
Develop community and educational partnerships.
Provide programs promoting arts education.

Increase our social media capabilities to not only increase our exposure, but to extend our reach and story into the community at large.

Our organization's success has not only relied on our cutting edge and diverse and inclusive programming, but our ability to create strong and long lasting artistic and non-artistic partnerships.

We have begun to reach out to our constituents and community through the planning and implementation of our first ever annual giving campaign.
