Statement of Values

The Old Globe believes that theatre matters.

Our commitment is to make it matter to more people.

The values that shape this commitment are:

Theatre cultivates imagination and empathy, enriching our humanity and connecting us to each other by bringing us entertaining experiences, new ideas, and a wide range of stories told from many perspectives.

The communities of San Diego, in their diversity and their commonality, are welcome and reflected at the Globe. Access for all to our stages and programs expands when we engage audiences in many ways and in many places.

Our dedication to creating exceptional work demands a high standard of achievement in everything we do, on and off the stage.

Our priority every day is to steward a vital, nurturing, and financially secure institution that will thrive for generations.

Our prominence nationally and locally brings with it a responsibility to listen, collaborate, and act with integrity in order to serve.


Land Acknowledgment

We are making theatre matter to more people on the ancestral home and unceded lands of the Kumeyaay, also known as Tipai-Ipai, a tribe of Indigenous peoples who live at the northern border of Baja California in Mexico and the southern border of California in the United States. Their Kumeyaay language belongs to the Yuman–Cochimí language family. The Kumeyaay have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now known as San Diego.
