The Theatre School Values


We advance intellectual development and ethical consciousness. We foster moral, spiritual, social, political, and artistic growth. We promote participation in civic life.


We inspire respect for self, for others, for the profession, and for humanity. We embrace the Vincentian model of service.


We build a community founded on the principles of creativity and freedom of expression. We value initiative, innovation, exploration, and risk taking.


We celebrate the primacy of the imagination in our work.


We believe theatre is a place for reflection, awakening, and the development of moral awareness.
