ABOUT

 

MISSION

We are a pay-what-you-can, not-for-profit organization dedicated to delivering socially relevant, professional theatre to the impoverished communities of Indianapolis & Terre Haute, Indiana.

VALUES

INCLUSION

The representation of all walks of life is a fundamental part of our philosophy. We open our arms to any and all to participate in the Monument experience; be it in our audience; onstage; or those we collaborate with offstage.

SUBSTANCE

We believe theatre is more than mere entertainment. Storytelling has been central to the human experience since the dawn of civilization and needs redesigned for the modern day. Our goal is to create new audiences and theatre that matters.

HONESTY

The world in which we live must be confronted and must be done so with authenticity. Our purpose is to break from narratives that reinforce the status quo and provide the masses with an experience that resonates with the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.

OUR STORY

Monument was conceived in 2016. As emerging artists the core company were overworked, under slept, and unfulfilled. They were ground down and surrounded by work they didn't believe in - work that was uninspiring and subpar. It became evident that substance and soul had been brushed aside in favor of buzzwords and superficiality. They decided it was up to them to do their part in changing the culture and perception of the craft they love. It became their goal to create new, challenging, and lasting work and to place it alongside long-standing classics to remind the people what theatre was meant to do. After their first full season of operation, Monument was named the Best New Theatre (BroadwayWorld) and have proven themselves as a breeding ground of substantial, thought-provoking work.
