Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Midwestern State University theatre program is to advance the study, creation, and performance of live theatre, and, in so doing, to equip students to make positive cultural contributions as theatre educators, professionals and graduate students.

Production Company Mission Statement

The mission of the Midwestern State University Theatre is to advance the study and presentation of live theatre, with an emphasis on creative process. In the classroom, on the stage, or behind the scenes, we will do our best to bring credit to our art form and to enlighten ourselves and those we entertain.

To succeed, we must reject the gratification of ego and embrace unselfish cooperation, for ours is a collaborative art form. We must also take risks by allowing theatre to open our minds or disturb our audiences when such risks can promote a more tolerant, inclusive, society.
