Over the last two years Centre Stage London has actively been focusing on diversifying our membership and audience. Here's what we've achieved so far:

  • We are actively taking part in the London Drama Societies diversity action group where we have had an active role in shaping the guidelines and policies to be implemented within amateur dramatic societies across the country.

  • We've created and maintained accessibility information for our rehearsal and performance spaces.

  • We've reviewed our audition notices to include more diverse language and focus on conscious casting.

  • We've actively included pronouns of The Board of Trustees to engage the community in the education of gender issues. Pronouns will also be implemented in out casting notices and show programmes going forward.

  • We've created a new diversity monitoring form to understand the membership and to evaluate the benchmarks within our societies.

While we've taken these steps at an attempt to diversify membership and audience, we understand there is still work to be done and we welcome you on this journey of continuous learning and growth.
