MISSION STATEMENT

A 501(c)(3) non-profit, Warriors For Peace Theatre’s mission is to provide catharsis and help with reintegration back to civilian life for veterans by way of the theatre arts. Our purpose is to not only help those who have served, but to build bridges between communities, support disenfranchised groups, promote diversity, empower women, narrow the civil-military divide, and foster peace among nations. ALL CLASSES ARE FREE FOR VETERANS!

 

CORE VALUES

We are driven by the core values of empowerment, diversity, tribe, trust, and resiliency.  

PHILOSOPHY

WFPT has a simple philosophy: Who better to promote peace than those who have seen the face of war?  We believe art transcends politics and brings people together.  

SOCIAL IMPACT

WFPT provides artist a venue to use their craft to promote social good.

 

1. Acting provides an additional form of therapy for veterans still processing the experience of war.

2. Bringing veterans of different nations  together to perform art promotes peace and is a way to heal.

3. Each production includes a Q & A with the audience that provides the public an opportunity to have a dialogue with the cast of veterans to help narrow the civil-military divide.

Our exciting production was placed in a modern war setting with gender bending roles and a diverse cast comprised of military veterans and civilians. Directed by Ann Noble. 

There are three reasons we embarked on this project:

1. A Collaboration of Military Veterans and Civilians

Julius Caesar, one of Shakespeare’s most revered works, is partly a story about war. Our country has been fighting wars for twenty consecutive years now. We cast this stage production partly with military veterans - actors who have experienced combat in our current conflicts. I don’t think this has been done with this play.  Our actors brought a certain depth and understanding of the challenges and affects to the human psyche of those who have experienced the horrors of war.  Our production was a collaboration of veterans and civilians. This partnership fits into our mission of using art to heal and bring people together.  Working with civilians is a critical component to the reintegration of our returning veterans into civilian society after returning from military service

 

2. Ethnic Diversity In Casting 

Our production has a very diverse cast and reflects modern society and the military in a way many productions do not. 

 

3. Gender Bending Roles

We gender bended some of the main characters, including Marc Antony, Julius Caesar, Casca, Octavius, and others. In a time when there is a long over due push in the industry to have more female leads Julius Ceaser provides a perfect opportunity to present a women in leading roles.
