About our casting

Like Willamette University, the Theatre Department strives for inclusivity in the opportunities we provide – onstage, backstage, in the workplace and the classroom. We make every effort to make casting choices that reflect diversity in race, age, gender, orientation, and all other aspects, and the theatre embraces non-traditional casting possibilities in each audition.
