Our Core Purpose
At Theatrical Outfit, our mission is to provide our diverse audiences, actors and artists with a rich theater experience and to produce works that stimulate thoughtful discussion. We are intentional about using local talent to tell our "Stories that stir the Soul" - which often come from classic and contemporary literature - featuring themes that enrich and enliven the civic discourse.
Our vision is to restore theatre to its ancient roots as the community's source of inspiration for civic discourse, innovative excellence and social justice.
Our Core Values
We tell consistently high-quality, soul-stirring stories, often from great classic and contemporary literature, with themes that are relevant and revelatory.
We have a deep appreciation for history, which is manifested in some of the stories we tell, in a landmark building, in the heart of Atlanta, in the American South.
We create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for our diverse audiences to reflect on, respond to, and connect through the stories we tell.
We are intentional about providing opportunities for professional Atlanta-based actors and artists to work and excel.
As the country’s first LEED-certified theatre, we create an environmentally-friendly place to enjoy and produce events.
We make visiting, performing and working at Theatrical Outfit a remarkable and rewarding experience.
