For over 30 years, Repercussion Theatre has been giving emerging theatre-makers their first professional gig as part of our Shakespeare-in-the-Park tour. It’s not hyperbole to say we’ve helped to kickstart hundreds of careers. Our alumni have gone on to work in and lead theatres across the country, as well as in television, film, circus, the video game industry, and much more.
In the company’s early years, the entire cast and crew were often composed of recent theatre school graduates. Now we focus on bringing together established and emerging artists, to provide meaningful mentorship opportunities and to allow everyone to learn from each other. But young talent is still at the heart of what we do, and we hire 10-20 emerging artists and production personnel every summer. For so many of them, working with us is just the beginning – and we’re so proud when we get to say, “We knew them when…”
We are passionate about potential. We love taking a chance on new talent. And we are proud to be the first step in so many long careers.
Help us continue to foster the next generation of amazing artists and creators by donating to our “Kickstarting Careers” campaign today. Thank you for your support!
