Mission Statement

Ford's Theatre Society works to present the Theatre's nearly one million visitors each year with a high quality historic and cultural experience, enhancing the vibrancy of this historic site, an important tool for promoting the ideals of leadership, humanity and wisdom espoused by Abraham Lincoln.

As Ford's Theatre approaches the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, the institution has renewed its commitment to presenting world class theatre. And, within the near future, Ford's Theatre will be recognized as a major center for learning, where people of all ages can examine the events of that fateful evening in 1865, and enjoy opportunities to emulate the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln.

Description

Ford's Theatre operates as both a National Historic Site and a live working Theatre. When the theatre reopens in February of 2009, all visitors will need a ticket to enter the venue. Ford's Theatre Society works very closely with the National Park Service to create a welcoming environment for both patrons and tourist visitors. As the eyes and ears of the theatre, volunteers play a very important role in the succes of both daily operations and performances.
