Andy's Summer Playhouse exists solely to provide children with a variety of experiences designed to foster and develop their appreciation, understanding of, and sense of commitment to the continued existance and livelihood of the arts as a vital component of community life.

Be responsible to and for something larger than themselves.
Create a viable work of art recognized by all ages.
Understand, through experience, the importance and the nature of creative, artistic self-expression.
Work with professional artists to present to the community at large an artistic experience of high quality.
Develop a lifelong appreciation of and need for the arts in community life.
