Atlantic in the Community

Uncovering and celebrating the stories of our varied human existence.

At Atlantic, our aim is singular—to empower simple and honest storytelling that fosters greater understanding of our shared world. We are a family of artists dedicated to exploring essential truths onstage. In addition to our work as a producer of theater, we are an educator of theater. We are driven by the belief that theater can challenge and transform our ways of thinking and urge us to reflect on our role in society. Through our community-based education programs, we are committed to uncovering and celebrating the stories of our varied human existence.

Our Students and Educators Series offers educators the opportunity to engage their students both at the theater and in the classroom through workshops, study guides, educator preview nights, and student matinees with post-show discussions.
