BREAKDOWN

Critical to Geva Theatre Center’s and Syracuse Stage’s core values is an institutional culture of dignity, trust, and mutual respect. In every decision we make, we strive to uphold the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion, and to facilitate artistic excellence and risk.
The character descriptions below are written as they are identified in the script and in collaboration with the creative team.
1)We list race/ethnicity when specific to the character as written by the playwright, but are otherwise actively seeking all races and ethnicities.
2)We recognize that most characters are written on the gender binary, and so we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles with whom they most identify.
3)As an ADA compliant theatre, we welcome performers of all abilities and will make all possible and reasonable accommodations to cast performers in any role possible.
4)We recognize that no community is homogenous and identity is complex. To that end, the above three guidelines were written with our intention of intersectionality, and are meant to be viewed holistically.
Overall, we seek to cast our productions as expansively, inclusively, and mindfully as possible.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, and if there are any accommodations we can provide.
