UAlbany Theatre Program Casting and Production Policy

The UAlbany Theatre Program is committed to racial, cultural, and individual diversity, in all areas of production. We are committed to non-traditional casting to expand opportunities for women, actors of color, and actors with disabilities in roles where race, gender, or the presence or absence of a disability is not germane.

The UAlbany Theatre Program believes that students and artists of all races, genders, sexualities, nationalities, religions, and cultures are vital to the success of our casts, our crews, and our production teams. We also promote the idea that earning and retaining a role or a production position is a privilege, not a right.

Declared and intended Theatre majors will be given priority consideration for all available roles and technical positions. However, we welcome all students committed to working collaboratively and taking artistic risks, to join us in creating dynamic and thought-provoking theatre.
