Actors Theatre of Louisville unlocks human potential, builds community and enriches quality of life by engaging people in theatre that reflects the wonder and complexity of our time.
Actors Theatre of Louisville is an arts and culture organization as social enterprise, dedicated to serving our community and creating a more just and inclusive society. Our work strategically centers experiences that reflect a civic commitment to the social good and to the health and wellness of the many constituents we serve. In pursuing a synthesis of art and service, our interdisciplinary laboratory intersects art, emergent technology, and social transformation for a storytelling (r)evolution. We uplift stories and amplify voices that represent myriad perspectives, especially those historically excluded, seeking to connect and learn from a diversity of people, ideas, and cultures through our work. Grounded in equitable practices and the work toward our collective liberation, we strive to cultivate a welcoming space of belonging for all.
Actors Theatre of Louisville advances our mission through in-person productions, multi-platform entertainment (streaming, VR, animation, video gaming, music), myriad Learning and Creative Engagement initiatives, partnerships with aligned organizations throughout our community, lively forums for civic dialogue, and projects that use art-based practices to enhance the physical, mental, and spiritual wellness of our communities.
Actors Theatre of Louisville sits on the unceded land of many Indigenous communities including the Shawnee, Cherokee, Chickasaw and Osage people. Indigenous peoples have always lived on the land that is now called Kentucky and continue to live here today.Learn More
