Sing Street is committed to racial equality on Broadway and beyond. LEARN MORE.
We the company of Sing Street are committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion.
We recognize that we are far from being as inclusive as we want to be.
The composition of our 21-person cast includes 5 People of Color. Our 63-person creative and production team has 4 People of Color, and our lead producing team is entirely comprised of white people.
We are but one show in an industry that needs to rethink the way it does business. When a system ignores, excludes, rebuffs, limits, lessens, and thwarts Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, the entire process must change.
Consequently, we pledge to do the following things to help effect change in our show and in our industry at large because Black Lives Matter:
We will create an anti-racist work environment through training and anti-bias sessions with our company. This work will be ongoing and will continue as we return to the rehearsal room next year in order to create a more equitable and inclusive workplace.
We will ensure that the mental health of our BIPOC company members will be a priority as we go back into rehearsal.
We will establish a clear and confidential procedure tailored to the needs of our BIPOC company members to voice concerns or issues as they arise.
We will launch an initial 3-year industry fellowship program to provide paid training, support, and leadership pathways for aspiring and emerging BIPOC producers and management.
We will introduce meaningful, paid internship roles for BIPOC across various departments at Sing Street in conjunction with our Broadway debut.
We will continue to use our social platform to amplify voices that are promoting social change. This month we will launch a video series, creatively led by our cast and company, that will have a call to action.
We commit to reflecting the change in our future work with the cast and company members for Broadway and beyond.
We share this pledge publicly to hold ourselves accountable. These commitments are the beginning of our long-term dedication to racial equity in the theater industry.
