ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Authenticity Theater Inc. is the Georgia not-for-profit corporation that operates our theater and education programs.

The corporation was formed in December of 2021 and began operations in January 2022. Our organization is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors who provide guidance and oversight.

MISSION

To entertain and inspire audiences through though-provoking productions that create awareness and reduce stigmas of real human issues

VISION

  • Be a voice in our community creating impact on key social and cultural issues
  • Contribute to other organizations who mirror our desire to make a difference
  • Help empathy and compassion grow and thrive to heal and change our society

ACTION

We select shows that have something to say. Our goal is to not only entertain our audiences, but to create thought and discussion about important topics that impact our community – socially and culturally.  You can expect shows that speak to important issues like:

  • Mental illness
  • Substance abuse
  • Divorce
  • LGBTQ issues
  • Poverty
  • Domestic Violence
  • Immigration
  • Sexual Abuse

We also seek out like-minded charitable organizations who are making an impact to address these issues.  Shows will have partner organizations so we can work together to foster awareness and change
