Our Mission

The mission of Benchmark Theatre is to stimulate conversations about the universal human experience and nourish the imaginative spirit of our community through thought-provoking productions. With a focus on community and partnerships, we strive to bring the greater Denver area to the forefront of American theatre.  We do theatre with intention.

Our vision

Benchmark Theatre is a professional company of artists who nurture and elevate each other, our audiences, and our community with principles of mutual respect, humanity, and the need for generating exceptional productions. 

Furthering that ideal, each season we will be partnering with a local youth arts program in an effort to assist in generating donations and creating opportunities for their participants, as we value the importance of developing future generations of artists and audiences.
