Oak Park Festival Theatre explores our shared humanity by telling stories that stand the test of time. By looking to our past and re-imagining the familiar, we hold a mirror up to the times in which we live, bringing us all a little closer.
Central to this mission are three important core values:
ROOTED IN SHAKESPEARE Shakespeare had a genius for telling stories that speak to all of mankind. His work was universal, visceral, and acutely complex. Following his lead, we aim to explore the human condition through stories that stand the test of time, both classic and contemporary.
INCLUSIVE & COLLABORATIVE From the stage to the boardroom, we strive to represent the world around us by telling stories that are inclusive of all, and by doing so enrich our art, our relationships with each other, our audiences, and our community. By collaborating with community partners, we widen the scope and deepen the impact of our mission within our community and endeavor to cultivate a sense of family and inclusion of all.
COMPANY CENTERED Passion, bravery, and a generosity of spirit have been guiding principles of the artists and patrons of Oak Park Festival Theatre since 1975. We aim to create a safe, supportive, and artistically invigorating environment for all.
