about bag&baggage

Mission Statement

Bag&Baggage's mission is to unpack the stories we carry with us — from anecdotal to epic; from original to classic — using these as the groundwork to create transformative theatrical experiences that explore our shared humanity.

Vision Statement

Bag&Baggage strives to weave creative expression into the fabric of the civic life of Hillsboro through conscious relationship-building; to use our art to intentionally challenge the tenets of white supremacy; and to heal the wounds in our community through the cultivation of empathy and listening. We use this vision as our guide as we actively work towards our collective liberation.


Bag&Baggage is committed to making professional live theatre accessible and affordable to all members of our community. We have implemented a wide range of programs to ensure that everyone who wants to attend one of our shows can do so comfortably.
