The mission of The York Theatre Company is:
• to be a birthplace for new literate, intimate musicals, and a place where underappreciated musical gems from the past are rediscovered;
• to provide support for the creators of new musical theatre and be a showcase for new musical theatre talent of all kinds;
• to provide students with opportunities for hands-on theatre education, and
• to serve the community by presenting free or low-cost musical theatre performances to under-served audiences.
