WHAT COULD BE. WHAT SHOULD BE.

OUR STORY

Hurt people will hurt other people. It’s a vicious cycle, one that Dan made the choice to put an end to in his sophomore year. Two teachers took a moment out of their lives to encourage him that there was more. More in him. That his life was made for a purpose. It cost them nothing, but it radically changed the outcome of Dan’s life. Dan was lucky. Dan was the exception.

OUR VALUES

We believe the art of performance has the power to tell unspoken stories which can flip the script, awakening empathy, igniting hope, and inspiring change. We believe engaging in empathy leads us to act beyond the mere awareness of what is right or good. We believe we are in good company when others are seen, accepted, and know they belong.
