Overview

Our mission as a community of artists: to combat and dismantle racism, sexism, and heteronormative cisgender dominance in theater and in theater training. Formalizing our goals in our syllabi, our classrooms, and our stages to breakdown and disrupt traditional theater training hierarchies; to hold space in creative collaboration in our classrooms and rehearsal spaces promoting and utilizing Antiracist Pedagogy and Culturally Responsive Teaching Methods.

Key facts:

We are Bobcats and that means in part; being willing to be vulnerable and sitting with the discomfort that comes with taking on the hard conversations and doing the essential work of functioning as a community with a dedication to equitable anti-racist representation, and actively pursuing purposeful inclusion of marginalized groups and their contributions to the canon of theatre.

Musical Theatre program is offered at Texas State University.
