The organization welcomes students of all ethnicities and theatre backgrounds to participate. A strong emphasis is placed on a “no experience necessary” policy. The organization’s mission includes expanding the conversation regarding diversity and cultural integration in the performing arts and providing pre-­professional connections for our members with theatre groups in the Boston and New York City areas.
