The Hub Theatre Company of Boston
The Hub Theatre Company of Boston is a 501(c)(3) non-profit performing arts organization registered with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the IRS.
1. To cultivate a diverse audience that spans all ages, cultures, races, and socioeconomic levels through Pay-What-You-Can ticketing.
2. To produce entertaining, imaginative, literate, socially aware, emotionally engaging theatre in intimate settings. We believe that an audience can have as equally transportive, moving, and memorable a theatrical experience in a black box theatre with a small cast and small budget as they would in larger professional theatres.
3. To foster the development of emerging and mid-career theatre artists - actors, directors, designers and playwrights - and encourage them to stay in Boston.
4. To provide opportunity for theatre artists of all ethnicities, genders, gender identities, ages and body types.
5. To cultivate an ensemble of the Boston area's best theatre artists.
6. To explore the region's cultural heritage and identity with New England, Massachusetts, and Boston-based stories and writers.
7. To collaborate with business leaders, performing arts patrons, and local government to spearhead the development of affordable rehearsal and performance spaces for Boston's emerging "fringe" theatre companies.
