DANVERS HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMY THEATER SOCIETY STATEMENT FOR ONCE ON THIS ISLAND ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
The Danvers High School Academy Theater Society is committed to being a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization. We strive for all students and staff to feel valued and respected in all their identities. This includes, but is not limited to, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, education or disability.
Once On This Island takes place on islands in the Caribbean Sea known as the French Antilles. The cast should include the diverse population of that region. Performers of all backgrounds were encouraged to audition, such as Asian, Black/African Descent, Ethnically Ambiguous/Multiracial, Indigenous Peoples, Latino/Hispanic, Middle Eastern, South Asian/Indian, Southeast Asian/Pacific Islander and others.
The Danvers High School Academy Theater Society encourages any student who needs special accommodations for the audition and rehearsal process to reach out the any member of the production team.
