Artistry & Education – We believe in the transformative power of arts education, from youth to adults. We craft and offer educational experiences to preserve the legacy of Shakespeare and his contemporaries while simultaneously exploring how and why these works persist well into the 21st century.
Inclusion & Integrity – We know that our work is enriched when it is created in a space open to diverse ideas, perspectives, and lived experiences. We honor and celebrate the unique voices that are part of our cast, crew, and community, and we aim to include and explore interpretations on our stage that highlight these as well.
Community & Collaboration – We value our role and position as a nonprofit company in the Temecula Valley Wine Country, Southern California’s premiere tourist destination, and endeavor to be a reliable partner to other local businesses and arts organizations. We seek to provide a venue for residents and visitors to come experience the joy and wonder of live theatre, as well as a home for talented local theatre artists to hone and express their crafts.
