Theater of the Seventh Sister exists to produce professional theater: classics, new and contemporary plays, experimental theatrical forms, education, and outreach programs. It is a fusion of professional artists whose mission is to speak to an increasingly diverse and multi-cultural community. It believes that theater is a vehicle for spiritual, emotional, and social sharing, a medium that enriches and enlivens our perceptions of our place and ourselves in time and affirms theater as an integral part of the human experience. Theater of the Seventh Sister is dedicated to ever-growing artistic quality, to mutual support of each artist and to humane, non-exploitative management of the company.
Our programming strives to provide seven core values to the community as befitting our Theater. They are: to be excellent and thought provoking; to connect diverse communities; to demonstrate artistic integrity and creative courage; and to provide illumination and authenticity.
Theater of the Seventh Sister receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
