Mission

To remove the "ILLUSION OF INCLUSION" in the American Theatre, by building a sustainable ethical roadmap that will increase employment opportunities for Black theatre professionals. Our vision is to reshape the working ecosystem for those who have been marginalized by systemically racist and biased ideology.

What We Do

Mobilize. Implement. Transform.

Black Professionals make up less than 1% of the theatrical workforce. Black Theatre Coalition is working to increase the numbers.

BTC has secured partnerships with top companies and professionals across every major sector of the Broadway and theatrical ecosystem, including producers, designers, directors, general managers, casting directors, press agents, advertising & marketing executives, booking agents, attorneys, and theater companies. These partnerships are critical to creating, building, and implementing BTC's sustainable program model and changing the landscape in the American Theatre.

Our accomplices have agreed to work with BTC to (1) identify Black candidates for employment in their offices, (2) implement paid apprentice programs for Black Creatives, (3) create paid fellowships and/or create leadership positions in their offices and hire paid Black professionals on future Broadway and theatrical projects.

We are also partnering with sister organizations, including Broadway Advocacy Coalition, Broadway Serves, Broadway For Racial Justice, WSY, and MUSE. Collaboration is essential and we look forward to working with any other organizations that are working toward real and lasting change.
