The Road Company Diagonal Team is a company research team designed to be a liaison to all facets of the community by listening, learning and understanding how we can better help to meet its needs and make the theater arts more accessible to all members of our diverse culture. Through roundtable and focus group discussions, we hope to grow as a company by building and strengthening a healthy relationship with our community by making the theater more approachable and attainable for our patrons, artists, directors, technicians, administrators, and educators. In doing so, the Road Company will be able to provide more relevant programming, develop stronger educational programs, provide sensitivity training to its staff, and open countless equal opportunities for all people of color, race, age, disability, gender identity and belief.

“There are two types of people in the world right now, those who talk and those who do! While talking is great, there’s not enough doers, I’m really excited to be a part of The Road Company who has decided to DO! Together we will not only inspire change, we will BE the change! I can’t wait to look at our stage full of performers, our seats full of audience members and our staff full of workers who represent the world. Yes, I can see it now… a building full of people representing every person in the world no matter their race, sexual orientation, religion, body type, disability or age! It’s not far fetched. It’s right within reach and, when it happens, we truly will be GRAND!!!”
