Mission

Project SEE Theatre is a fellowship of artists dedicated to engaging our community through imaginative storytelling.  We strive to explore the human condition through visceral, provocative theatre; theatre that entertains and electrifies; theatre that sooths and unsettles; theatre that is bold, intoxicating and fearless. We embrace, celebrate, and exploit those qualities that make theatre unique.  

As educators and artists, we are unwavering in our commitment to ongoing theatre training in order to enrich our work and our community, cultivating ground for a new generation of theatre artists and a more diverse audience.
