A Town Hall: Equitable Casting

This town hall will address issues of representation, racial justice in theatre, the critical “role” of playwright/author’s intent, the erasure of voices and stories, and the consequences of cultural appropriation, with the goal of generating strategies towards equity in casting practices and programming in our regional theatre community and beyond.
