Who We Are

McCarter’s Education and Engagement programs use the art of theater to facilitate discovery, develop agency, and build community for learners of all ages.


Core Values

Artistic Excellence: We aim to cultivate sophisticated, thoughtful, energized, motivated, and bold theater artists and theater lovers.

Personal Growth: We are dedicated to developing essential skills of creative thinking, collaboration, personal agency, persistence, joy, and empathy among our students and community participants.

Diversity and Inclusion: We are steadfast in our work to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning communities where all are welcome, everyone’s contribution is valued, and each participant can thrive and grow.

Access for All: We are committed to exploring the creative process with those who may not otherwise be exposed to theater-making because of economic circumstance or other barriers.
