Theatre for the People By the People

Established in 1969
Fifty-Two Years of Live Theatre
TOR is a 5013c not for profit organization

The mission of the Theatre of the Republic (TOR) is to be a major cultural resource. We shall do so by providing affordable, quality theatre which provides diversity in our offerings to the community. This includes diversity in the selection of plays produced, diversity in the content of the programs presented, diversity in the casts and production crews who participate, and diversity in the opportunities provided to experienced and aspiring artists. We believe it is important that TOR engender inclusiveness that cuts across racial lines, gender roles, religious views, socio-economic status, age groups, and sexual orientation for both the artists and the community.
