DEI Statement

We believe the arts have the power to inspire social change.

The Board, Staff, Volunteers and Artists of Little Theatre on the Bay believe in the transformative power of cultivating the theatrical arts in our community.

We also recognize the true value and critical role that diversity, equity, and inclusivity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive.

We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment where everyone who enters the Liberty Theatre —  patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and vendors — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.

  • We model diversity and inclusion for the entire arts industry of the nonprofit sector, and better serve our patrons’ and constituencies’ needs for art and culture.
  • We contribute to the revitalization of Coos County through providing diverse entertainment/arts programming that respects and values diverse life experiences and heritages.
  • We are committed to using inclusive practices to attract and retain talented staff and volunteers fostering a sense of belonging.
  • We build a stronger theatre by ensuring a safe environment to share ideas where all voices have an opportunity to be heard.

We understand that the foundation of a vibrant, thriving theatre arts group and performance venue is the cross-pollination of creative/diverse programming, the cultivation of inclusive practices and strategies, and the development of a diverse team of volunteers and artists who share these values.

We believe this is a continuous evolution as we strive to reflect and meet the needs of our patrons and our community. Our commitment to upholding these principles and strengths is interwoven within the faithful mission to preserve the heritage and legacy of Little Theatre on the Bay.
