DIVERSITY STATEMENT

Garden Theatre is dedicated to being a leader in the community for celebrating diversity and presenting all voices on our stage. It is through our differences that we can explore our commonalities. GT strives to provide a home for audiences, staff, volunteers, and theatre artists from all backgrounds. 

Diverse stories require diverse voices; GT’s staff, artists, and the Board must become more representative of our entire community. GT must also expand its audience to include all Central Florida residents, regardless of ethnicity, religion, geography, income, or any other divisions. We know that we must educate ourselves and listen to all members of the community whose voices have been marginalized for far too long, especially people of color.

The expansion and refinement of this diversity statement is an overall goal for the Garden Theatre.

SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES

Sensory friendly performances are for families that have members (both children and adults) with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and special needs.

Special modifications will be made for these performances, including reduced volume levels and modifications to lighting, haze, and other special effects.

Families are welcome to bring items (blankets, pillows, noise reducing headphones, snacks, etc.) to make their visit more comfortable.
