Our Mission

The MAD* Factory is a non-profit organization in Lorain County, Ohio, that provides young people with education and performance experience in music, arts and drama.

MAD* is committed to:

  • Building self-esteem and mutual respect
  • Developing the creative process
  • Serving under-served populations
  • Focusing on cultural diversity
  • Developing excellence in the arts
  • Collaborating with other community organizations

We envision a future where:

  • All people of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to obtain invaluable skills, giving them the confidence to pursue the passions of their choice, through classes and performance opportunities in Oberlin and surrounding communities;
  • We provide a season of performances in our permanent home where individuals come together in community to support and encourage youth throughout their lives; and
  • We are an integral contributor to the community through community service and a permanent outreach program.
