Mission & Values

Proctors mission

Foremost are education, civic engagement and economic development

When local residents think of Proctors they tend to think of the Broadway shows presented at the nearly century-old structure at 432 State Street in Schenectady. But Proctors is so much more.

We expanded the scope of this website in early 2017 to raise the visibility of everything else the defines Proctors: The Ambassador program in three cities. A repertory theatre in downtown Albany. A power plant in Schenectady. A performance art space in the heart of Saratoga. Innovative programming. An alternative newspaper. And so much more.

Our mission statement reads: “Through arts and community leadership be a catalyst for excellence in education, sustainable economic development and rich civic engagement to enhance the quality of life in the greater Capital Region.”

We hope you peruse this Web site and discover all that is Proctors. And return often as the story keeps evolving. Our goal is to keep reaching more people in more profound ways in our pursuit of the best quality of life imaginable for our neighbors.
