Welcome


Pathfinder Theatre began in 2003 as a vision for a theatre company committed to telling truthful stories with respect and honor for all involved, from cast and crew to audiences. However, without a venue, the vision sat in a computer file for nearly six years until December 2008, when a discussion with another theatre enthusiast brought the dream to life again. At the moment, our dream is big, our resources are small, but our potential is unlimited!

Our vision

The vision of Pathfinder Theatre is to help people discover, develop, embrace, and celebrate their creativity and their unique selves as individuals and in community.

Core values

  • Authenticity: truth, honesty, genuineness
  • Creativity: self-expression, art, fun
  • Growth: learning, education, self-discovery, self-development, self-empowerment
  • Community: interpersonal relationships: family, friends, the workplace
  • Respect: professionalism, quality work, attention to detail, sensitivity to others

Focus

Pathfinder Theatre is committed to presenting stories that explore the question, “What does it mean to be human?” At the same time, we are also committed to showing respect for our fellow human beings: cast, crew, and audience. With this in mind, we will present stories that fall into either of two basic categories:

Family friendly: These productions are open to all ages, as the stories feature no profanity, little or no violence, and no “adult situations.”

Gritty reality: These productions are the equivalent of PG or PG-13 movies. There may be profanity. There may be violence. There may be topics discussed that would not be appropriate for younger audiences. However, we will only present stories that contain profanity, violence, or “adult situations” if we believe that the story being told has a significant or meaningful message, and that the profanity, violence, or “adult material” is essential to the story and not gratuitous.

Also, there is no smoking onstage or anywhere in the building.

Location

Pathfinder Theatre is located in central North Carolina; our offices are in High Point, and we are currently looking for a rehearsal space and a production venue in the Triad area (Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem, Kernersville, Thomasville, Archdale).

We need you!

At the moment, we are looking for theatre enthusiasts of all stripes, including actors, singers, dancers, choreographers, directors, writers, stage managers, tech crew — and, of course, audiences! If you would like to be a part of Pathfinder Theatre, we would love to hear from you. Please use the contact form on this site to get in touch with us, or register to become a member of our website.

… the playwright had better love the character and love writing the character and love you being interested in the character. … [I]f you don’t have interesting characters, everything I’m saying is almost without merit, because you simply must fulfill, you simply must solve a kind of everyday problem — who are you, why are you there, what do you want, how are you going to get it? With a great part, it’s so much more than that; it’s living a life in front of an audience. Nothing can compare to that.
