- building and nurturing relationships with established and emerging artists
- encouraging innovation and excellence as the keystones of all presented and produced work
- fostering a creative environment that engages and inspires artists and audiences of all ages
We are dedicated to serving a broad and diverse community, as demonstrated by the stylistic range of our programming, our reasonable prices (both tickets and rentals), and by our leadership role in arts and literacy education for children and adults.
