Theatre Professional Defined

I know. This is a question open to interpretation. This is not a definitive guide of a theatre professional. It is how I define, for myself, my professionalism. You may agree or disagree. It is here for you to do such!

 
 

Defining a Theatre Professional.

You’ve talked about being risky (hiring unknowns, bringing in more culturally diverse personnel). There has been symposium after symposium about how theatre is about taking a risk. It tends to be, almost, all talk. And I get it. You’ve got a company to run, board members looking over your shoulder, expectant audience members who demand quality, students to educate, or an economic bottom line to meet.
 
While risk is a nice idea, that idea gets tempered by the day to day realities of running a company / educational institution. BUT we cannot deny that RISK is vital to growth. Stagnancy does nothing to grow a company, impress the board, satiate audiences, inspire students, or increase your bottom line. I have created this site, along with my other internet properties, to help mitigate any risk you think you will incur by bringing me on board. “I make risky palatable.” That’s the definition of a true professional! Here are a few others…
