Take a Number, Inc.’s mission is to help create a thriving arts community in Westchester County, New York by bringing perspective-altering theatrical and performance events to all areas of the county. The company believes raw, uncensored theatre should transform people and the society around them by provoking a range of reactions from uncertainty and discomfort to introspection and self-affirmation.
Take a Number, Inc. emphasizes work created by women and other under-represented groups by producing impactful new work as well as revivals that continue to succeed in taking a hammer to its audiences’ perspectives and expectations. The company also gives serious consideration to proposals from any groups or individuals who wish to have Take a Number produce or co-produce their events ranging but not limited to concerts, parties and fundraisers.
To ensure a broad audience and to increase the reach of provocative programming, special outreach initiatives (including offering free tickets to South Yonkers residents) are a critical component of the company’s work.
In short, Take a Number, Inc. serves as a vehicle for people of all backgrounds to confront and begin to dismantle the barriers between them.
