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

FREE theatre education returns in July!

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.

Stories connect us and strengthen our community.
