Ophelia’s Jump Productions
Strategic Planning Task Force
Mission and Values Statements


Revised and adopted March 15, 2021

Mission Statement:

Ophelia’s Jump stirs the conscience of the community through performance and teaching that create conversations, spark imagination, elicit visceral responses, and move people to action. We are a professional, non-profit theater company that questions the status quo by telling stories created by and centering under-represented voices, especially those of Women, LGBTQIA+ and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) artists and audiences.

Values Statement:

Inclusivity drives everything that happens at Ophelia’s Jump. Founded by Women, Queer artists and educators, OJP promotes empathy, fosters appreciation, bridges differences, and promotes understanding among people of diverse ethnicities, genders, sexualities, abilities, and social backgrounds. We are committed to reducing or removing the socio-economic, physical, cultural, and language barriers that prevent equitable, inclusive access to theater in our region.
