Mission

Hip Pocket Theatre, an experimental arts ensemble, is committed to producing original scripts and pieces not usually performed in this area. HPT relies on the imagery of fantasy and fables, original adaptations and scripts that mainly draw their inspiration from the legends and history of Fort Worth and the Southwest. The performance focus is interdisciplinary, utilizing traditional theatrical elements along with music, drama, mime, dance, puppetry, and projected images.

Equity Statement

Hip Pocket Theatre acknowledges first that the land on which our theatre resides once belonged to native American tribes - Tonkawa, Hassinai Caddo, Wichita, Comanche-affiliated Kiowas - and we thank the First Nations for their teachings about and stewardship of the land. Hip Pocket Theatre is and always has been committed to giving a voice to artists of all races, ethnicities, and creeds. Because of this, we are committed to ensuring that we provide opportunities for everyone to learn, create, express themselves, and tell their stories. Hip Pocket Theatre strives to provide a place where all are welcomed, included, and provided equitable opportunities to experiment with their own artistic style and vision.
