Through a two-week intensive rehearsal process, the ensemble will get a taste of the real, fast-paced professional theatre process where a new play is rehearsed and performed in two weeks.
All teens ages 14-18 who are eager to be part of something special are encouraged to apply to join Diversionary Theatre’s LGBTQIA+Allied ensemble! Because of the advanced timeline of our productions, some theatrical experience is a plus, but not required.
Submit your application below and Diversionary Theatre’s Education Outreach Director, Skyler Sullivan, will be in touch to schedule a brief interview to get to know you better and answer any questions you or your parents may have.
Thanks for giving yourself the gift of community and creativity. We look forward to connecting with you!

Arts Education is thriving at Diversionary Theatre, and our programs spread the seeds of understanding and tolerance around our unique mission as the third oldest LBGT theater in the country. Watch this video to learn more about each of our education programs.
By sharing LGBTQ stories with our community we bring stories that need to be told, directly into people’s lives. We provide a safe place for all students, and we are excited to extend a lifeline to our LGBTQ youth who may not have the support at home or at their school. We are giving people permission to be who they are, and for many this might be a life saving experience.
All of these programs are only made possible by the generous support of our donors and our community.
