We’re proud to celebrate 45 years of artistic excellence, enthralling audiences, garnering awards, and nurturing the careers of many of our local actors and artistic innovators.

Beyond the stage, our educational and engagement programs invite and welcome community members of all ages and strata into the joy and power of creative expression and voice.

Regionally and nationally, we are proud to be a standard-bearer and leader in arts equity, helping redefine the role a 21st-century performing arts organization can play in shaping society and redefining our shared human experience. All of this is made possible through the support of generous people who believe in our work.

Thank you!
