Mission Statement​​

We believe that as a collaborative art form, theater allows artists with an array of talent and skill to participate in a process, which connects them with the greater community, thereby nurturing its cultural vitality.

Hardscrabble Theater is dedicated to promoting this process by providing quality live theater to the people of Long Island.
