Our Mission

Garden Theatre Company cultivates intersectional, growth-based relationships with underserved and under-represented Middle Tennessee communities through professional, theatrical productions and educational programming.

Our Vision

We aim to lead Middle Tennessee in inclusive, equitable theatre experiences and opportunities while maintaining intolerance for hate and ignorance in every aspect of Garden Theatre Company, the communities we serve, and the world at large.
