1. Community - It is a place of belonging. The theatre is inclusive, warm and inviting and you feel connected to something special when you walk in, whether you’re there to watch a performance or partake in a workshop or show.    

2. Playfulness - It’s a place of fun. The theatre is  a home for creativity where playfulness is personified and celebrated for people of all ages.

3. Quality - The Covert is a vibrant performing arts community for improvisers who wish to be a part of a world-class tribe. It’s a place of learning. A place for self-creation, self-discovery and self-expression; where you learn about yourself by playing with others.
