The Montgomery Playhouse board would like to make it clear that we stand with the protesters fighting for racial justice in our communitues. Our thoughts are with the loved ones of the innocent Black Americans killed or injured due to the injust society we live in.
The recent events have given us time to reflect on the lack of racial equity and inclusion within the theater community and where we as the Montgomery Playhouse have fallen short.
The Montgomery Playhouse is committed to community theater that is inclusive and diverse. To start we will take immediate action to reach out to people of color in order to diversify our board. We will listen to Black and other disenfranchised members of our community and make sure their stories are heard and celebrated.
We see you.
Black Lives Matter.
