Mission Statement

To produce theatre that challenges audience expectations by creating a forum for artists from under-represented groups to interpret theatre in new ways.

Specifically, Griot Theatre will produce the following types of plays:

Classics

Make the classics accessible to present-day audiences by re-imagining Shakespeare, the Greeks and other classics via non-traditional casting, inventive interpretation and evocative staging.

Established Plays

Further society’s understanding of the human condition by exploring diverse and innovative established plays.

New Plays

Contribute to the future of American Theatre by developing and producing new works by playwrights from under-represented groups.

Description

Griot Theatre of the West Valley is dedicated to creating professional, resident, live theatre in the West San Fernando Valley. In order to achieve the best possible theatre experience we will offer the following:

Quality

Focus on collaborating with the finest directors, actors and other theatre artists available in the country.

Casting

Seek to create opportunities for actors from under-represented groups - including ethnic minorities, women and actors with disabilities - to perform non-traditional roles.

Accessibility

Make productions accessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences with the use of captioning and sign language interpretation.

Inclusion

To serve the large Spanish-speaking population residing in the West Valley, Griot Theatre will mount shows that are alternately captioned in Spanish.
