Mission & Values

Proctors mission

Foremost are education, civic engagement and economic development

When local residents think of Proctors, they often 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 that 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, 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 site and discover all that is Proctors. Return often as our 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 and community.
