our mission

The mission of Avalanche Theatre is to foster the development of new plays and playwrights through a collaborative coalition of theatre makers. We seek to create opportunities for diverse, innovative, and unconventional writers by creating exciting, community-building developmental performances and feedback sessions that enrich our audiences and allow for the growth of our artists. We strive to create a foundation on which the next generation of theatre writers can build.

We are a strong, passionate community of collaborators who provide a constructive and encouraging environment for the development of new plays, and who work to push the boundaries of what theatre can be.

A new way for new plays.
