Our Mission

The Fox Riverside Theater Foundation is a tiny nonprofit with a BIG mission: To bring the Fox Performing Arts Center to under-served communities in our local region – with a special focus on inspiring and supporting local students of all ages in pursuing careers both on stage and behind the scenes. We seek to enrich the lives of those we serve through community-focused performances, outreach, and fundraising activities.

Governed by a stellar Board of Directors, our mission comes to life through our amazing, interactive programs, such as Students and Seniors at Broadway, our master classes and workshopsbehind-the-scenes tours, and Live Tech, a program to teach theater technology, primarily to high school students, using the Fox Performing Arts Center as the learning lab and Live Nation (theater operator) professionals as instructors.

What We Believe

We envision the Fox Performing Arts Center as a crown jewel in a flourishing regional cultural community, where entertainment and enrichment opportunities are many, easily accessible to the public, and of premier quality. We believe:

  • That everyone deserves access to the beauty and thrill of live performing arts, and everyone has the ability to be a patron of the arts
  • That the Fox Performing Arts Center is an invaluable cultural asset to our region
  • That arts are a vehicle to connect, unify, and strengthen our community
  • That an investment in our organization is an investment in our community, with dividends that will ripple through future generations
  • That kids who are exposed to arts experiences are better students, and better future citizens
  • That a single opportunity can inspire a student to seek a career in the arts
