Artistic Vision and Mission



The Brecksville Theatre has as its’ simple mission “Engaging the community through the performing arts.” We honor the history of the two founding theatres that merged to form the new theatre in 2017, and forge ahead to create, engage, inspire, entertain, educate and challenge audiences with theatrical productions and classes in the local community and beyond. With vibrant seasons that range from the classics to new works; we train and support the next generation of theatre artists; we provide arts education programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community; and we celebrate the essential power of the theatre to illuminate our common humanity.


Our vision for The Brecksville Theatre incorporates the following values:

  • Excellence
    We seek to achieve the highest quality of performance and education in a supportive working environment, and expect excellence from the artists, staff and volunteers with whom we work.

  • Community Outreach
    We believe in offering programs and performances that are inclusive and engaging; that reflect the diversity of our greater geographic region and our immediate locale in order to have a meaningful impact on our community.

  • Educational Training
    We are committed to the training and support of current students and adults and future arts professionals, through ongoing classes in acting, directing and technical theatre craft.

  • Leadership
    We will continue to strengthen our leadership role in the arts community of Brecksville and surrounding communities, and enhance our regional reputation.

  • Innovation
    We value creativity and innovation in all aspects of our organization, including the work of our artists and the ways that we support them.

  • Financial Health
    We will uphold our covenant as a not-for- profit institution by being reliable stewards of the public trust and the resources provided to us by our community.


The Brecksville Theatre will offer a season consisting of an American/ classic, a comedy, a children’s musical, a musical, the education series, and new works. Each season will bring in some of the most talented directors and designers to lead and engage.

The season will be assembled by the Artistic Committee with the assistance of the Managing Director, and presented to the Board of Directors.

The Education Department will continue to offer their unique and engaging productions while touring and performing at Old Town Hall. We strive toward incorporating youth camps and classes.
