Our Mission: Great Stories, Big Heart.
Our Vision: To be the best little arts organization in the region, committed to sharing profits with local human services organizations, as we shine a refreshed spotlight on truly great stories.
Giving Tree's programming is driven by classic stories that you've heard of, know about, or will be glad you did after you've been to a show. We are committed to reintroducing titles and stories that will be as comfortable as the comfiest couch in the theater. We're also committed to doing it all in a small (but not too small) space with great views of the stage no matter where you are seated. ...Modest sized audiences with GIANT sized stories that evoke that knee-jerk feeling of "I am so glad we came here to see a show!" because everything is juuuuust right. :)
Why Giving Tree
You are probably wondering "what gives with the Giving?" in our title. Great question. We want to do things differently. A percentage of profits from each Giving Tree Theater production will be donated to a different local human services non-profit determined by the cast, crew, and production team of each show. Giving Tree wishes to combine great stories and local talent as a vehicle to make our community a better place. The ultimate goal is for art to give to the community as much as it gives to the audience. Giving Tree Theater is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization, but maintains a for-profit model, allowing it to autonomously donate funds back to the community.
We want to offer a "one of a kind" intimate and immersive live theater experience. We aim to evoke a sense of nostalgia and history while offering some of the most comfortable seating available in any theater in the region. Every interaction is an experience, and Giving Tree is committed to making each one unique.
We hope to see you soon!
