First Run Theatre is Committed to:


First Run Theatre is committed to amplifying the many and diverse voices in our theatre company and community. We will not tolerate any form of racism, oppression or any other type of discriminatory practices imposed upon any artist because of their color, creed, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religious belief. We will continue to do our part in upholding principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Theater has an important role in creating change. We at First Run Theatre intend to play our role in listening, learning and making positive change happen.


We are committed to creating the safest environment for our audience, actors, crew and front of house staff. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have canceled the remainder of our 2020 season and any meetings, auditions etc. are set up using Zoom. We have a policy setting out how we will re-open safely when we are allowed to. Read it by clicking on the link: COVID-19 POLICY. If you do have any concerns or questions please email us at firstruntheatre@gmail.com.
