Our Mission

Mission Statement

The Huntington Theatre Company engages, inspires, entertains and challenges audiences with theatrical productions that range from the classics to new works; we train and support the next generation of theatre artists; we provide arts education programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community; and we celebrate the essential power of the theatre to illuminate our common humanity.

Founded by Boston University in 1982, and separately incorporated in 1986, the Huntington's relationship with Boston University remains our primary strategic and programmatic partnership.
