WAM Theatre Mission Statement
Every time an audience comes together for a theatrical event, a community is formed. WAM Theatre engages that community by 1) producing theatrical events for everyone, with a focus on women theatre artists and/or stories of women and girls 2) donating a portion of proceeds from those theatrical events to organizations that work to benefit the lives of women and girls in our communities and worldwide.
Through theatre and in theater we strive for equality in opportunity and treatment
We are champions for human rights, working to create change by creating opportunity for women and girls which lifts all of humanity. We work diligently and tirelessly for fairness and equal access through our dual mission of theatrical and philanthropic endeavors.
We make an impact locally and globally
Every time an audience comes together a community is formed. We recognize that we are part of a myriad of communities and we therefore create change by telling stories about and across local, global, gender, ethnic, artistic and international communities.
We stand up with integrity, honesty and respect
Our conviction and integrity guide what we do and how we do it, everyday. We adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and personal responsibility. WAM Theatre provides philanthropy through the arts by using theatre to benefit women and girls worldwide. Our sponsors support women and girls by supporting the arts. Double Philanthropy.
Until WAM began doing these charity givebacks in the Berkshires it was rare for a theatre company to actually embrace local social programs as a matter of their core mission… WAM has created a new paradigm.Berkshire On Stage and Screen
