Mission Statement

Gum-Dip Theatre's mission is to celebrate, challenge, and invent community identity in the Rust Belt. Through neighborhood story circles and PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN theatrical performances, we aim to enhance civic engagement and participation. Gum-Dip Theatre's process is focused on community building through socially engaged performance. GDT facilitates story circles to generate material for an original play. The community is involved in every step of the process to create productions that are a source for reflection and connection.
