Creating a sense of place

We believe that we enhance our region by paying creatives and encouraging them to create! We invest locally – in both talent and products. We foster civic dialogue with art at the center and endeavor to be a highly respected artistic home for our region, which encompasses Williamston and the Greater Lansing area.

Sustainability

We use the theatre’s resources mindfully, investing in a vital future for our institution.

Honoring All

Williamston Theatre acknowledges that we are a predominantly white organization and we exist in a world in which systemic racism exists. In an effort to be better and broaden the voices represented by and included in our work, we commit ourselves to the work of becoming an actively anti-racist organization, and to creating a culture of inclusivity and equity.
