The Drama League helps artists and audiences in the following areas:
The Drama League opens doors for exceptional stage directors by providing time, resources, and space to work without restriction, while augmenting skills through personalized training, production opportunities, and professional development. The Drama League carefully selects directors whose vision and talent are unparalleled, with a clear commitment to the craft, the field, and audiences. Through our work, The Drama League celebrates the important role theatergoers have to the future of the industry, and champions the impact theater plays in civic life.The Drama League breaks the formidable barriers that impede success in the arts. We actively work to create a cultural landscape where every artist is considered on their merits. In doing so, we take action to support directors who have traditionally been denied equitable opportunities, including on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender identity, gender expression, age, nat...ional origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status.
These directors, nurtured and empowered by The Drama League's support, are trained to create the most rigorous work possible, as a live exchange between artists and audiences. In doing so, we elevate the conversation, deeply impacting theaters and their communities. Bringing people together to celebrate difference, share experiences, and discover common ground are crucial needs served by the work of Drama League directors. This necessary cultural practice is the foundation of our shared humanity.
Now, more than ever, the theater demands articulate proponents for its urgency, resonance, and universality. As arts participation continues to decline nationwide, Drama League directors are fully prepared to lead the industry in renewed responsibility to its audiences, delivering heightened relevance, vibrancy, and accessibility to the field. Only to the extent that the field embraces its dedication to audiences –and the role it can play in uplifting and connecting those audiences through their work – will the industry remain a vital element of civilization.
At The Drama League, our Core Values inform and guide our service to the theater, its audiences,
and the world. We strive to bring these Values into daily practice, ensuring our culture remains
