Vision For Palisade Playhouse

Mission:

Palisade Playhouse provides a high quality, family-friendly place for community theatre, choir, education, and events in a Christ-centered environment.  

 

Values:

At Palisade Playhouse, we value:

  1. High quality. We provide an outstanding musical, choir, and event experience to everyone who joins us.

  2. Hard work. We expect each role, whether on or off stage, to be carried out to the fullest extent.  We expect members of the Palisade Team to help each other when needed to benefit the organization as a whole.

  3. Family. We honor the family as the most essential unit of society, and want to accommodate those with families.  This community can buoy up families, and be a safe and healthy place for children and adults to have a hobby.  Our children often attend rehearsals and performances, so we expect conduct of those who join us to be appropriate for all ages.

  4. Time. While we’re here, we work and play hard, but we value the time of those who come here, so they may arrive and leave promptly.

  5. Abundance. We have seen many miracles, we continue to see miracles, and we have faith miracles will continue to exist here.  Miracles occur more frequently when we are generous and see everything abundantly.

  6. Optimism. While there will be challenges in any organization, we face challenges with optimism and courage, knowing that God will always provide a way to accomplish the things He needs to be done.

  7. Honest and Open Communication. Most disappointment comes from unmet expectations. We value discussions that take place sooner rather than later, to keep what we expect and reality as closely aligned as possible.

  8. Welcoming and Inclusion of All People. While we are Christian, and our faith and morals are apparent in what we do, we welcome those of all faiths, races, backgrounds, and cultures to join us.  We expect all who join us to be respectful and kind of others' views.  While discussions at Palisade Playhouse can be open and honest, we do not promote any specific religious denomination, political view, or social agenda on our stage, in an effort to help all people feel welcome.
