The Comédie de Béthune is one of the 38 French national drama art centers. Its main mission is drama play creation with the objective of:
- Be a regional and national reference point in creating and running plays created internally
- Look for audience within a large public and reach out to new people
- Play a key role in preserving traditional theatre jobs

Since 1994, the Comédie de Béthune drives a theatre decentralisation project, along with local authorities, offering shows and plays in local towns. It also organises encounters, workshops and friendly events with visiting or in creation artists, participative projects for shared moments with the public.
