At Theatre 9/12, trained and working actors, both union and non-union, continue to develop their talents and skills through workshops and performances. Their efforts climax with productions presented through the Actors' Equity Association Members' Project Code. Theatre 9/12 staff assists these union actors in making these projects come to life.
