Freehold Theatre engages artists of all levels in training and experimentation so that they may become more innovative and heartfelt in generating theatre that has a lasting impact on the community we serve.
For over 17 years, Freehold Theatre has been providing outstanding theatrical performances and acting, directing and playwriting training taught by some of the most talented performers in the Northwest. Freehold also produces an Engaged Theatre Program which brings theatre to underserved populations including those in prisons, hospitals, low income housing communities and the general public.
The work we do strives to integrate organic, truthful roots and an empathic connection to the life around you with extraordinary expression physically, vocally, and imagistically. Work can originate from a clear, extreme form; but must then be rooted in organic truth, or filled. Or work can originate in the organic, inner truth; but then it must weave out into specific, clear, extraordinary expression. Inner life does not mean vague, self-indulgent emotionality; nor does outer form mean empty technical execution. Form and content must both be developed for any given performance and then integrated "a tall order. The training for such work is focused on developing in each artist an open heart, a sense of astonishment, an expanded imagination, a rigorous sense of truth, a resonant and expressive voice and body, compassion, and the intention to serve the community and the larger mission of the Theatre and the play, and not self-glorification. It is in the integration of these several aptitudes that one's contribution is realized. It takes dedication, determination, humor, insight, and guts to keep working toward an end that will never be all the way there" and to have faith that you are contributing to an Art where "Everything eternal triumphs here and all that is usual melts away.
