Accessibility

Green Thumb Theatre is actively seeking to dismantle inequity in the theatre sector, and to furthering principles of access, inclusion, and equity in our work. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other communities facing systemic marginalization, and welcome members of those communities to self-identify as they feel comfortable. Green Thumb also recognizes that artists, employees, and contractors are informed by all facets of their identities. We welcome applicants to inform us of their pronouns if they wish, and to include details about how their identity informs their practice and needs as they see fit. All Green Thumb staff, contractors and volunteers will be asked to sign off on Green Thumb’s Anti-Oppression and Anti-Harassment Policy.
