The primary goals of Ampersand are the production of quality theatrical events and the training of students in the techniques required to produce such events. At the heart of these goals are these principles:
That commitment is important at all levels of participation;
That all members make a valuable contribution to the organization;
That new ideas can be expressed in a safe, nurturing environment;
That self discipline is an aid, not an impediment to self expression;
That, except when casting demands it, theatre makes no distinctions of gender, age, size, or social standing;
That leadership is as much a responsibility as a privilege.
