The goal of … the Montford Park Players … will be to focus on quality of theatrical experience for company members and audience, while broadening and improving outreach and continuing traditions of accessibility and Shakespearean emphasis.
While MPP supports traditional and non-traditional stagings, the staging and concept of any production should enhance the original text and not detract from it. The Board encourages a focus on an understanding of the language and the ability to communicate it to an audience. Purely academic and experimental stagings are discouraged.
