Join Us In Making Theater Happen!

Animus Theatre Company is a family of artists committed to telling stories about the resilience of the human spirit that exists within us all. Our plays are visceral, feature complete and complex characters, and encourage our audiences and artists to confront challenging questions in a fearless and truthful manner.   

In doing our work, we are committed to:
1. Volunteering in the communities we serve and with those whose stories we tell
2. Telling stories that feature characters of all genders, sizes, ages and race
3. Providing our artists with a living wage
4. Creating a safe and challenging space for our artists to create, and to encourage and provide opportunities for continued artistic and professional growth
