WaterTower Theatre’s mission is to create innovative, diverse theatre that builds community by fostering empathy and dialogue.


WaterTower Theatre’s vision is to connect the world to Addison and Addison to the world through developing and presenting innovative theatre that is artistically vital to our community locally and beyond.

We will be a development center and laboratory for theatre creation that pushes the boundaries of our art-form to find new, essential expressions of theatre. Our creative laboratory will develop art and artists, and incubate new productions that will excite and engage theatergoers and make WaterTower a sought-after and relevant artistic voice to DFW and the national theatre community.

WTT is committed to being a supportive home for diverse artists. We will cross-pollinate our spaces with artists who: work in different styles, forms and genres; range from emerging to experienced; are from DFW and around the world; and that speak from different backgrounds, genders, sexualities, abilities, and countries of origin.

We will also connect with theatres locally, nationally, and internationally, exchanging work and ideas that will resonate not only in our artistic forms, but in the conversations, we have within and around our work.

WTT is a place where audiences can trust that each show at our theatre will bring something different to our audience: a new point of view, genre of theatre, or experience. WTT’s productions will take our audiences on a journey in their imagination and hearts without leaving our Addison home.

We are committed to producing work that aligns with our core values of diversity & inclusivity, community & connectivity, innovation, and honesty & integrity.
