MISSION STATEMENT

Full Spectrum Theatre Company is committed to broadening perceptions of who looks and sounds American by normalizing racially diverse casting. Our productions focus on universal themes, set in today's America, with no featured ethnic references.  By presenting modern American stories with an integrated cast, we bring characters to life who are relatable through the common experiences of family dynamics, friendship, and growing pains, thus highlighting our connections beyond the surface of race, ethnicity and accents.
