Explore Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism
Theatre@First is always seeking production and support staff. Each show requires a host of heroes to take on positions from set construction to stage manager, make-up artist to house manager. If you've been looking to get back into theatre or trying to get more involved with your local community, this is your opportunity. Whether you're an old hand or a total newbie, volunteers are always welcome. Have fun while doing creative and rewarding work with friendly people. Commitments can be as little as a few hours!
Theatre@First is run by our Steering Committee which meets monthly.
If you would like to be a part of the action at T@F, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you are interested in doing.
Be Part of Our Next Season
By planning each season as a whole, we look to remove barriers to participation, welcome new directors into our organization more smoothly, and increase the diversity of our directing bench and the voices we feature in our work. Learn more about how to make your dream show part of Theatre@First's next season of shows (coming July 15).

Expand Your Horizons
All the World’s a Stage is a new monthly discussion group for plays by BIPOC authors, both American and international. The goal is to broaden readers’ horizons beyond the largely white American- and European-centric theater we’ve seen and read our entire lives. We’ll discuss these works as book clubs often do—things we liked, things we didn’t, who our favorite/least favorite character was. We’ll hopefully also discuss the differences and parallels to our own cultural experiences, and what influences race, ethnicity, religion, and culture have in forming the characters and driving the plot in ways that we may not have expected.
A Wider Shelf aims to read aloud rarely performed works by BIPOC, women, and LGBT+ playwrights with the goal of expanding our knowledge base and identifying potential Theatre@First projects. Hosted by the Artistic Director, A Wider Shelf is open to anyone who enjoys reading plays aloud and is interested in discovering scripts overlooked by the American theatrical canon.
We keep a calendar of current events that you can check out, if you're interested in the work we do both on and off the stage. It's easy to add to your Google Calendar so you'll never miss a show!
Our FirstWords blog features posts by our leadership about important issues, shows in development, and other things on our mind.
You can also stay up-to-date with the latest events at Theatre@First by joining our mailing list! It's a non-commercial distribution list, so you won't get spammed with lots of unwanted messages or ads.
