The mission of Uproar Theatre Company is to inspire, nurture, challenge, amaze, educate and empower artists and audiences, in order to make the greater Jackson area a more conscious and compassionate community. Uproar Theatre Company strives to create opportunities for community participation in enriching, immersive theatrical experiences. Our focus is on inclusion and quality, offering the public a well-balanced theatrical season, and striving to meet with excellence all the demands placed on a public theatre by encouraging multi-cultural ensembles and functioning as an artistic home for self-producing and growing artists. Uproar Theatre Company’s intent is to utilize the performing arts to make the greater Jackson area a more conscious and compassionate community. We hope to inspire in all of us the willingness to explore new ideas and generate dialogues concerning social justice.
