OUR MISSION

The Southern Theater helps build and sustain a vibrant artistic community by providing a supportive home for the Twin Cities’ finest, most creative independent performing artists. The Southern creates a respectful and intimate environment that encourages artists and audiences to engage in intelligent, enjoyable artistic exploration.

OUR VALUE STATEMENTS

We believe the artistic experience is essential to the human experience.

We believe that art has the power to make a difference in the world, to transcend and overcome the differences between peoples, and that the nature of artistic perception allows new awarenesses, new insights, new experiences. 

We believe things are not always what they seem.
