1. Connection - 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.
