Our Artistic Philosophy
We both produce and present musical theater (America’s great indigenous art form) with the highest standards of artistic excellence. We place an emphasis on producing and utilizing Northwest-based artists.
We are committed to the development and production of new works. Each season, we program an appealing mix of productions that reflect the broad scope and cultural significance of the American musical (past, present and future), and attract, delight and retain a large and diverse audience.
We achieve artistic excellence while maintaining fiscal responsibility. Each season must be both artistically and financially sound.
