EvEryone is Welcome
Founded in 2009, our Executive Director Hillary Brook started Theatre South Orlando out of a small office at the Rosen JCC. With a philosophy that when students are inspired by working with diverse professional artists, anything is possible. Theatre South not only became a safe place for young people to learn their craft, but also a place for local professional artists to share their gifts while providing a place of mutual respect for this community
The mission of Theatre South Playhouse is to nurture, challenge, and empower our artists and audience in order to inspire and educate our Southwest Orlando community. We strive to create a safe space for artists of all backgrounds to gather together with the common goal to teach the values of mutual respect for all.
Our DEI Mission
Theatre South Playhouse is committed to making diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority in all aspects of our growth as a community company. From how we create productions, to how we teach our classes, we work to recruit diversity amongst our staff, guest artists, and community leaders to share their knowledge and talents. We embrace diversity of background, perspective, culture, and experience, and together as a team, we will work to fight injustice and inequity. From bringing our programming and training to underserved families; to creating opportunities for underrepresented entrepreneurs; to amplifying diverse voices; we’re committed to growth in our Playhouse to help create positive change in this world.
