The company's diverse casting is also celebrated in the production.

Apocalyptic Artists launched in Spring of 2020 to provide NYC schools with FREE, quality, interactive theater workshops, instructed by theater artists, in conjunction with professional productions of classic and contemporary plays. Since their launch, Apocalyptic has produced three shows, two of them Shakespeare, and provided free theater curriculum to around 1500 NYC students in over a dozen schools.
