Equity & Inclusion

Chico State Theatre is committed to diversity, inclusivity, and anti-racism.  As such, we pledge to continue to reimagine new approaches to both contemporary and classical works, as well as increase the representation of BIPOC, LGBTQ, and women theatre practitioners, along with members of other marginalized and/or minoritized groups in our main stage season.  No less than 50% of our season will have relevant themes and/or creators from these communities.
