Mirror Stage uses the power of storytelling to challenge assumptions, bias and prejudice, increasing equity and inclusion while encouraging more thoughtful reflection on today’s issues.
Mirror Stage reflects the diversity of our community onstage in high-quality, professional productions that play it smart without always playing it safe. We nurture unique artistic voices while providing opportunities for newly-emerging artists to work alongside more seasoned professionals. With the goal of increasing empathy and social justice, Mirror Stage uses theatre to connect people more deeply to perspectives and experiences other than their own while amplifying underrepresented stories, voices, and faces—getting people talking as well as thinking, to bring us to a place of common understanding.
