Motto

The theatre is a laboratory
Drama is a reflection of our world
We meet at the theatre
To probe how we mortals live and how our worlds work
Through learning hard, we will strive to break away from the theatre of yesterday.
Portray the world with the imagination
Change the world by taking action
With our pure mind and virginal flesh
