More on Alabama Shakespeare Festival

MISSION

Alabama Shakespeare Festival, the State’s theater, builds community by engaging, entertaining, and inspiring people with transformative theatrical performances and compelling educational and community programs.

 

VISION

As the region’s most valued arts leader and community resource, we will strive to build upon our reputation for artistic excellence, broaden our reach throughout the state and beyond, and expand public participation and support.

 

VALUES

The following core values support our Mission and Vision as guiding principles that help shape ASF’s programmatic and financial choices. They will be at the center of every decision we make.

 

Heritage

Anchored by the struggles, joy, and wonder that define the works of Shakespeare, we present plays, musicals, and family programs that speak to the richness of human experience and, often, to the uniqueness of our region—a place born of close family ties, at times torn by social strife, but always reaching for reconciliation and renewal.

 

Excellence

We will maintain the highest standard of quality throughout every aspect of our organization. We will sustain a nurturing, supportive, and creative work environment that attracts artists, staff, and community leaders who are committed to excellence in all their endeavors.

 

Community

Art and culture are essential to a healthy society and ASF will consistently work to serve as a cultural conduit for community interaction. We will offer programs and services that are inclusive of our diverse community and will continuously seek to increase the benefits of those programs in ways that engage and inspire audiences, artists, staff, and the public.

 

Accessibility

We will consistently work to be increasingly accessible to the community as a gathering place where all are welcome to explore our theaters, our campus, and their idyllic park setting.

 

Life-long Learning

We believe that theatre and arts education provide unique avenues for personal and collective discovery, and we will consistently provide programming that serves audiences and students of all ages.

 

Stewardship

We will be reliable stewards of the resources that are provided to us. We will continuously build financial and organizational vitality by applying and maintaining the highest standards in our governance, management, and operational practices.

 

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion

We believe that the path to a better future begins with acknowledging and evaluating the past. On its stages, ASF tells engaging, entertaining, and inspiring stories of our personal and collective human condition, past and present. With mindful intention and building on our other values, ASF commits to advancing and representing equity, diversity, and inclusion in every facet of our theatre from workshops, rehearsal halls, and stages to the administration, Board, and audiences.
