Strategic Plan

2019 – 2023 STRATEGIC PLAN

World Class Theatre, Locally Crafted is the guiding principle of Cardinal’s strategic plan. The staff and Board sought to honor the tradition of the company and design the future with innovative and dynamic ways to sustain Cardinal Stage for decades to come.

Using targeted focus groups to actively listen and learn, we gleaned valuable wisdom and insight from our corporate sponsors, community partners, arts leaders, artists, donors and subscription holders, as well as past and present staff and board members.

The 2019-2023 Plan is the reflection of the vision and leadership of the company, and the role we play in the South Central Indiana region that so values the arts.

Cardinal Stage is committed to a set of goals we weill advance as an integral part of the arts ecosystem in our community. We have a clear vision of how Cardinal will make an impact moving forward and are excited to share our plans with you.

Strategic Direction

To advance Cardinal Stage as a professional theatre company, we will:

  • enhance artistic expression and production quality
  • cultivate resources for a sustainable future
  • collaborate and engage with the community

2019-2023 Goals

  1. Advance Artistic Excellence
  2. Inspire Community Cooperation and Engagement
  3. Strengthen Staff and Leadership
  4. Develop Sustainable Resources
  5. Grow and Engage Audiences
  6. Enhance Company Facilities
