For general operating support of mainstage productions, education programs, new play development and capacity building.
Passage Theatre Company is committed to the creation and production of socially relevant new plays and community-devised arts programming that transforms the lives of individuals and community.
*Passage creates new work in order to advance and diversify the art-form and our collective culture, affording emerging and established playwrights a platform for sharing diverse perspectives on complex and important issues.
*Passage educates youth and adults of all ages and backgrounds to explore, fully realize and share their greatest creative potential and the potential of community through the power of expression -- onstage, in the classroom, in their neighborhoods and across the nation.
*Passage aspires to achieve national prominence as a creative force for advancing the art form as a model for transforming community through arts and in transforming lives through the power of theatre.
Established in 1985, Passage Theatre makes its home in the historic Mill Hill Playhouse. For the past 29 years, Passage has consistently presented the work of established and emerging writers giving priority to writers from or with roots in NJ and plays most frequently with topically relevant themes. The mission was broadened in 1995 to focus on serving a culturally diverse community with an after school arts component designed to raise the aspirations of local youth. In 2009, Passage readjusted priorities to hire artists from NJ and PA whenever possible. Through this localized approach artistic excellence has been sustained and audience loyalty increased.
Core Values: Inclusion, Community, and Authenticity
