About the Workshop: Fight the Power!

Wanna make your theater a more equitable place to play? We ask the question: how do we make sure underrepresented groups have easy, visible paths to positions of power in our theaters? Prepare for a hard analysis of traditional power structures. Then learn how to disrupt, dismantle, and replace those with more inclusive practices. We will tackle topics like casting, hiring, and performing! Bring your current best methods to share and any tough issues from your home theater. ¡Sí se puede!
