Statement of Purpose Part Three

The goal of each night of theatre is to entertain. If our audience is not liking the play, we are not doing our jobs. This is not to say that we do not want the audience to occasionally be uncomfortable, but we want them to have a good evening. It is not our mandate to punish the audience or preach to them. Let others do that. Let the theatre entertain.
