Mission Statement

The mission of Stage 1 Theatre is to cultivate the love of live theatre in the Tri-City and Greater San Francisco Bay Area. We are a non-profit community organization that provides opportunities for audiences, artists, and members of the community to experience and participate in outstanding theatrical performances. Stage 1 Theatre offers equal access and equitable opportunities through our commitment to building an inclusive environment. We highly encourage people of color and other historically underrepresented groups to participate in every aspect of our organization. We strive to mirror our diverse communities and provide a creative space for all.
