Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at mad Cow theatre
DEI MISSION STATEMENT
Here at Mad Cow Theatre, we recognize that there have been blindspots in live theatre. We aim to rectify the mistakes of the past. We vow to work everyday to make this theatre a place of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility. We will strive to actively seek out diverse playwrights, directors, stage crew, producers, actors, choreographers, ushers, board members, office staff, and patrons.
We will present work that is not only entertaining, but also represents the vast history of different cultures and backgrounds. “Traditional” casting will be a thing of the past. We understand that representation matters and we want Mad Cow Theatre to be a place that includes all people. From casting to tech, our theatre will be a safe haven for everyone. We are not saying that we will be perfect, so we want to be held accountable to our community. We make this commitment to you in hopes that you will join us on our journey.
We understand that within this work, we will grow and change. We will make missteps and will learn from them. Towards that end, we represent that this DEI mission statement is a living document--it will continue to evolve as Mad Cow Theatre evolves.
