Mission, Vision, and Values

Our Mission
Dallas Theater Center will engage, entertain, and inspire our diverse community by creating experiences that stimulate new ways of thinking and living. We will do this by consistently producing plays, educational programs, and other initiatives that are of the highest quality and reach the broadest possible constituency.

Our Vision
Dallas Theater Center will be recognized, both locally and nationally, as a top-tier arts organization, as a cultural destination for Dallas and the surrounding region, and as a collaborative artistic force that values diversity and practices inclusion.

Our Values
The following values, which support our mission and vision, will guide our programmatic, financial, and other choices and will be at the center of all our decisions:

Artistic Excellence
We believe in creating theater, learning experiences, and associated programs that are consistently of the highest quality and that reflect the breadth and depth of theatrical art. In so doing, we will engage, entertain, educate, and inspire our patrons.

Operational Excellence
We are committed to the highest standards in our governance, management, and operational practices. We believe in developing an engaged, informed Board of Trustees, an experienced and accomplished staff, and a working environment that attracts trustees, staff, volunteers, and local and national artists of the highest caliber.

Financial Health
We believe in financial stability and will operate Dallas Theater Center in a financially responsible manner, with our goal being that the projected expenses for each year will be balanced with the projected revenue for that year. We will secure and maintain the human, financial, and other resources necessary to support long-term stability and excellence. We will engender community confidence, trust, and support and will be worthy of corporate, foundation, government, and individual investment that increases over time.

Collaboration and Inclusion
We believe that collaboration with the community we serve is central to our purpose and that our best results can be achieved when we partner with others in our community, including arts organizations, educational institutions, governmental agencies, and other groups. 
 
We will operate Dallas Theater Center as a public forum, supporting interaction that engages our community, introduces new ways of thinking, and inspires new perspectives in those we Dallas Theater Center serve. We will be inclusive of diverse peoples, ideas, cultures, and traditions and, by so doing, will enrich our work and our relationships with others.
 
Our commitment to collaboration and inclusion will also be evidenced by our respect for our trustees, staff, volunteers, and artists, all of whose input and experience will positively shape our 
working environment and our operating perspective.
 
Effective Utilization of Resources
We accept our responsibility to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us and to make wise and efficient use of those resources. We will hold those resources in the public trust and will be prudent in using them for their intended purpose. We will operate Dallas Theater Center as a valued community asset and for purposes that are consistent with our mission and in keeping with sound business practices.
