Statement of Principle

BLUEBARN Theatre strives to present programming that is as diverse and inclusive as the communities it serves. We recognize that representation matters and are committed to casting choices that honor a given character’s identity. We are also committed to actively working against implicit bias in casting decisions where a given role is open or neutral. BLUEBARN does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, national origin, religion, or disability. Rather, BLUEBARN embraces these distinctions and celebrates these differences.

Statement against Harassment

BLUEBARN Theatre is committed to fostering a culture of civility, dignity and respect as a right and responsibility of all who walk through its doors. Employees, guest artists, volunteers, and patrons are entitled to and responsible for maintaining an environment of mutual trust- free from intimidation, exploitation, harassment and discrimination. Offensive, abusive or unwelcome verbal or physical conduct will not be tolerated. Adhering to this standard is vital to the BLUEBARN’s mission: “to provoke thought, emotion, action, and change.”
