Our mission is to entertain and educate audiences in Lincoln and surrounding communities.

We believe in the power of storytelling.
Stories--Shakespeare's to our own individual experiences--have the power to connect us. Theatre allows us to walk in another's shoes from the safety of our own seat.

Empathy grows. Community strengthens.
