Building Community

Since 1981, Touchstone Theatre’s professional ensemble of resident theatre artists has pursued our mission to create, present and tour original theatrical work, foster community through artistic collaboration, and cultivate an awareness and appreciation of the performing arts across the Lehigh Valley region and beyond.

As an ensemble theatre rooted in the Bethlehem community for the last three decades we are often inspired by our surroundings.  We experienced the repercussions of Bethlehem Steel closing and Steelbound was born, we saw the growing Anglo and Latino communities on the South Side and the spark for Don Quixote of Bethlehem emerged, we enjoyed the beauty of Bethlehem at Christmastime and Follies took life, and so on.  We continue to live and work in this community inspired by and responding to its history, the changing landscapes, and most importantly the people of Bethlehem.
