We believe in the power of compelling stories told with the visceral impact of theatre to touch hearts, minds and souls. FLYING ANVIL THEATRE’s mission has two wings. The first presents audacious and provocative professional theatre that features the work of top-notch actors, playwrights, directors and designers. Flying Anvil Theatre’s second wing, the Hammer Ensemble, uplifts and connects the community by telling the stories of underserved populations, highlighting social issues and training a diverse and dynamic ensemble of new performers.
