Our Mission

Our Mission Statement

Draper Historic Theatre, a non-profit organization, enriches families, individuals and the community by providing positive artistic experiences in theatre - including affordable, wholesome entertainment and pleasant, edifying performance and educational opportunities.

Guiding Values

  • A nonprofit organization's 'product' is neither a pair of shoes nor an effective regulation. Its product is a changed human being. Non-profit institutions are human- change agents. Their 'product' is a cured patient, a child that learns, a young man or woman grown into a self-respecting adult; a changed human life altogether." Peter F. Drucker
  • Theatre is for people, people don't exist for theatre.
  • DHT is a safe place, fostering equity, respect, individual growth, teamwork and humility. Gossip, unnecessary criticism and "prima donna" behavior (both male and female) is not allowed.
  • The strengths and talents of each participant will be recognized and appreciated. Beginning and experienced performers learn much from one another and enhance performances in their own way.
  • Theater participants will work in a spirit of unity uphold DHT's standards, values and goals to ensure a pleasant experience for all who enter the theatre.
  • Many images are portrayed on stage in order to tell a story but, sincerity, moral behavior and kind, loving and/or familial relationships are the most valuable.
  • Volunteers are compensated not financially but with a sense of personal worth, respect, ownership in something important, friendship, and gratitude.


  • Purchase and improve our historic building to better facilitate DHT's performance and educational goals and to provide fiscal and housing security for the future.
  • Continually improve the quality and depth of our performances.
  • Build an education program which helps potential performers and crew to:
    1. increase self confidence
    2. enrich their understanding and appreciation of the arts
    3. prepare for future opportunities at DHT and elsewhere


DHT will become a significant arts facility in the Wasatch Front area known best for quality family programming and a caring approach to theatrical education and production.
