The first professional (Union), nonprofit theatre
in the State of Michigan,
the Detroit Repertory Theatre's mission
is guided by the belief that the sense of community
is stronger than the forces that splinter and
that efforts to preserve unity deserve the same
attention and support
as the justly cultivated efforts to retain diversity.
The implicit goal in all the theatre's efforts is
to produce the best possible professional theatre while
fostering cultural democratization of the arts,
and fighting, by example,
the disturbing level of racism that still exists.
