A Note from Creede Repertory Theatre:
In reference to the character descriptions below: most characters we currently encounter are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/hers pronouns. However limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking actors of diverse backgrounds and abilities. Please note that actors will be cast in two or three productions as is the nature of repertory theater.
Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if you are an actor who might need specific accommodations we can provide. Creede Rep currently offers child care assistance. Please inquire about how we can support you and your family’s needs.
