Mission

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.

Vision

Mirror Stage reflects the diversity of our community onstage in high-quality, professional productions that play it smart without 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 historically excluded stories, voices, and faces—to bring us to a place of common understanding. Mirror Stage is theatre that gets people talking, as well as thinking.

Values

  • Challenge: We focus on thought-provoking, relevant, progressive, risky, and inspiring work—encouraging people to examine their responses more intentionally
  • Integrity: We practice the highest standards of excellence, ethics, and professionalism in all interactions. We are committed to embracing the full range of human experience at all levels: on our stage, in our audience, on our staff, and within our leadership.
  • Partnership: We collaborate with audience and community members to find the best path forward and create positive change.
  • Respect: We cultivate and nurture an atmosphere of respect and inclusiveness, welcoming differing strengths, skill sets, cultures and abilities.
