Theater Latté Da seeks to create new connections between story, music, artist, and audience by exploring and expanding the art of musical theater.
We believe in work that is bold, collaborative and ultimately transformative; we act with integrity and gratitude.
We make bold choices in support of our mission and vision, both on and off stage. We value adventurous musical storytelling and are committed to experimenting with content and form in our quest to expand the art of musical theater.
We believe musical theater to be the most collaborative of art forms, incorporating music, drama, poetry, dance and design. We are inspired and strengthened through partnerships with artists, organizations and the broader community, and embody a collaborative spirit in all we do.
We believe in producing art that transforms artists and audiences. By illuminating the unseen, giving voice to the unheard, and empathizing with the unknown, we open eyes, ears and hearts.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards of artistic and fiscal integrity. We are committed to honesty, equality and transparency in all aspects of our administration and art.
We are grateful for our artists, audiences, donors, board and staff. We recognize that each individual plays an important role in our organization’s success, and we actively seek out opportunities to acknowledge each person’s contribution.
