Openness – We promote open discussion, cultural understanding and active learning by engendering respect for the broadest diversity of ideas, views, cultures and approaches to artistic endeavors.
Education – We view the art and practice of theatre as a vital resource to support and further the goals of community education, professional training and life-long learning.
