JET'S STATEMENT OF DIVERSTIY

JET is built on a legacy of acceptance of all people regardless of religion, race, gender identity, disability, or sexual preference. 

 

Currently, theatres and other arts organizations are examining their own complicity through indifference to issues of systemic discrimination within the creative industry. 

 

The Board of Directors and the Administration of the JET Theatre are working to establish proactive parameters to ensure that we remain productive allies to those who have been marginalized. 

 

As we return to normal operations, we will continue to work with experts in the industry and will have guidelines in place when we resume our regular professional theatre season.
