Commitment to Inclusivity
At Players we are committed to making our shows inclusive and accessible to anyone and everyone. This will be an ongoing effort, and we will be expanding our capabilities in this regard over time. We welcome your input if you know of a way we can improve and be more inclusive.
Presently, we are working with these guidelines:
When possible, we will choose wheelchair accessible venues and include designated areas for patrons in wheelchairs and their guests to view the show with an aim towards their maximum possible enjoyment.
We are looking into techniques and technologies to present our shows for individuals with visual impairments.
We are looking into forming a relationship with an American Sign Language signer to be available to present our shows for individuals with hearing impairments on an as needed basis.
If you or your guest needs this type of access, please notify us at least 2 weeks before the show so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
Going forward, Players commits to either begin our shows with a verbal land acknowledgement, or include such in our program, or both. We believe that this is just the first step towards the very necessary reconciliation with various indigenous communities.
Harassment of any kind for any reason is simply unacceptable within the Players framework, either during a show, during production or at one of our meetings or events. People are cool, no matter who they are, who they love, where they're from, what they believe in, or how they look. Don't be a jerk, or you'll need to leave.
If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions for improvement, we’d like to hear from you. Please reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
