OUR MISSION

The mission of Dramashop is to provide entertaining and provocative theatrical experiences designed to challenge, educate and engage the Erie community.

 

OUR VISION

At Dramashop, we believe there is value in every step of the creative process, not just the end product. We believe there is value in the creation and production of theatrical works, and that much of the magic of theatre happens before the audience arrives.

Dramashop aims to engage the community not just in the finished product we produce – innovative contemporary theatre – but as participants in the process of bringing theatre to life and in the exploration of diverse characters, situations and texts. We hope to challenge people to examine society, examine themselves and see our world from alternative viewpoints.

Dramashop will empower creative people, including actors, writers, directors and designers, with opportunities to develop their skills, explore their talents and make connections with other artists. We will provide free and low-cost educational opportunities designed to challenge people to find their inner artists and explore their own creative talents as a means of personal growth.

We believe theatre is a powerful art form and a significant agent for change. Through the exploration of theatre, we can achieve a greater understanding of our world and a greater understanding of ourselves.
