The Fiddlehead Mission

“Building Community Through The Arts”

The King and I 038

Our mission is to build community through the arts by producing exceptional main stage professional theater that uplifts while engaging audiences in current issues, by building community partnerships in the arts, and by engaging youth and adults in theater classes and productions that build self-esteem and foster creativity, pride and personal growth.

As an art entity, our productions boldly address current social issues presenting stories of hope, healing and help. We aspire to motivate and energize our audiences, uplift their spirits, renew their commitment to community and instill hope for a better tomorrow.

Through our Children’s Theatre Division students play an important role in giving arts to the community. Fiddlehead involves youth in theater classes and productions, providing valuable experience working as an ensemble, challenging their theater skills and strengthening ties to each other and the community. Older teens are also given opportunities to explore career options by working with mentors in technical and administrative areas of theater. By creating successful educational partnerships with community groups and local schools, Fiddlehead helps to educate children of all abilities and backgrounds in the theater arts.
