Mission Statement

Only Make Believe (OMB) creates interactive theatre with children in hospitals, special education schools, and care facilities. Inspiring joy and imagination, our professional actors engage children with medically fragile conditions and developmental disabilities, fostering social and emotional growth.


OMB is dedicated to the principle that engaging a child’s imagination is a vital part of learning and developing life skills. Our programming empowers children to explore their imagination, engage in critical thinking, and discover the fun-filled experience of expressing emotions through interactive theatre.

Only Make Believe's work is guided and informed by our beliefs and commitments to:

* Inclusiveness - we respect all people, value diversity and are committed to equity.
* Quality - we value excellence, and strive for continuous improvement in artistic programming and in governance & operations
* Participation - we value and welcome the perspective of all organizations and communities in which we engage
* Openness - we are committed to a culture of teamwork, collaboration, and accountability
* Play - We embrace personal connections to foster an environment of creativity, fun and limitless possibilities
