Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at CTC​

  • Ensuring our organization reflects our community: We envision Conundrum as a theatre company where equity is apparent in every facet of our operations. From our casts and production teams to our Board of Directors, we seek to proactively recruit artists that as a collective look like the diverse community we serve. 

  • Color-conscious and non-traditional casting: Our casting notices indicate when a character’s race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or other identity is relevant to the story, and we cast actors who share those identities. We actively cast against type and encourage actors to think outside the box in terms of their fit for roles where personal characteristics are irrelevant, particularly those that have been traditionally played by white cisgendered non-disabled performers.

  • Creating and maintaining safe spaces: We actively cultivate safe, inclusive environments in our productions and ensuring members of our community feel welcomed and affirmed is always our top priority.

  • Being accountable to our performers and patrons: We recognize that DEI efforts are never perfect and must constantly evolve. Input from diverse voices at all levels of our organization makes our art better and, more importantly, makes us better humans.
