A Note from Julie Ouellette
Producing Artistic Director
The Commons is a place for community. Both on the stage and off, we're committed to building common ground and bridging the gaps that divide us.
A commitment to radical inclusivity means that we welcome everyone and we actively celebrate the things that make us unique. Regardless of race, gender, age, orientation, ability, religion, or anything else — no matter who you are or where you come from, there's a home for you at The Commons.
"Maybe now is the right time
for a new theater company that showcases our community
and our varied voices."
