Our Mission

Swine Palace operates with a dual mission to provide South Louisiana with high quality, professional productions of classical and contemporary theater with an emphasis on plays exploring issues of social equity while also serving as a training ground for students in Louisiana State University’s M.F.A. Professional Actor and Technical/Design Training Programs.

Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.
