South Coast Repertory was founded in the belief that theater is an artform with a unique power to illuminate the human experience. We commit ourselves to exploring the most urgent human and social issues of our time, and to merging literature, design, and performance in ways that test the bounds of theater's artistic possibilities. We undertake to advance the art of theater in the service of our community, and aim to extend that service through educational, intercultural, and outreach programs that harmonize with our artistic mission.
