THE TALISMAN THEATRE Diversity Statement for Auditions

“If you audition for plays at The Talisman Theatre you will be cast on ability and suitability for a role, regardless of ethnicity, The only exceptions will be where a particular ethnicity is clearly logical or expressly specified by the author. This has always been so in relation to disability and sexuality and this remains the case. We will also seek opportunities to be creative in casting, for example, changing the gender of a role where an auditionee is the best choice, and where this is coherent within the context of the play. (Please note, occasionally Authors and/or Rightsholders refuse permission for this.)”
