Diversity & Inclusion
Finding Strength In Our Differences
Theatre of Arts is passionately committed to welcoming people from all backgrounds and circumstances, representing all racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and socioeconomic groups.
TOA has long been determined to play a role in combatting institutionalized discrimination and systemic racism; our mission statement includes a commitment to proactively enroll new talent representing communities that have been historically marginalized, and our acting conservatory proudly boasts a student body that is majority persons of color.
Theatre of Arts strives to maintain socioeconomic diversity via scholarships and tuition financial aid, and provides support to all students by way of skilled advisors, counselors and diversity educators—ensuring TOA continues to thrive as an inclusive community.
Our curriculum is continuously evolving to reflect the richness and diversity of the student body we attract, as well as the larger cultural landscape in which we create and perform. We believe the capacity for exceptional artistry resides in every identity, and we seek all passionate people with a deep commitment and hunger to master the craft of acting.
