Trebuchet Players is a pay-as-you-leave theatre company founded on the belief that good stories are a human birthright. Our mission is to create consistently compelling drama that resonates with regular people, regardless of previous theatre experience, income, education level, or sub-culture(s). We aim to provide a diverse, public audience with finely crafted drama.

VISION
The core tenets of our theatrical practice are communication, collaboration, and accountability. With these in mind, we have developed the following as best practices:
  • Pay-As-You-Leave
    • Beginning with the 2020 season, admission to every Trebuchet Players production shall be donations-based, and we won’t “pass the hat” until the end of the show (although tip jars will be available at the box office and concessions stand, and guests can make donations through the website at any time).
  • Scholarly Approach
    • Whether it’s a classic text, a more recent script, or something totally new, each play produced by Trebuchet Players should demonstrate cohesive dramatic and rhetorical structures; in other words, each story needs a plot and a premise.
    • Each production team should include at least one dramaturg or divide the dramaturgical tasks among other members of the team.
  • Audience Engagement
    • In order to best serve the needs of the audience, Trebuchet Players will regularly invite feedback in the form of surveys, pre-/post-show discussions, etc.
  • Direct Action
    • Trebuchet Players will regularly develop and execute Applied Theatre projects that utilize the tools and techniques of theatre for the purposes of education, therapy, community-building, etc.
  • Mobility
    • The company strives toward a mobility strategy that would allow Trebuchet Players productions to travel to other parts of the United States.
  • Artist Compensation
    • Theatre-makers are often professionals with years of experience and (expensive) training. The company will offer some level of monetary compensation to the creative team behind every production.
