What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Live Theatre. Arthouse Film. Youth Education Programming

Civic Theatre offers eight live theatre productions during our regular season. On our two stages, we produce the best of recent and classic plays and musicals, including theatre productions for children. Performers and technicians are volunteers, working under the guidance of talented, professional directors and designers. Our arthouse cinema offers hundreds of independent and international films each year, with the selection changing on a weekly basis. Civic Theatre School serves as Civic's main youth outreach initiative and a resource for young people to explore their creativity, build self-confidence and develop an appreciation for the performing arts. Through our EITC-eligible educational programs, Civic provides discounted tickets to local schools and brings an arts-infused literacy program to elementary school classrooms. CIvic also partners with area charitable organizations to provide discounted and free tickets to disadvantaged communities and patrons in need.

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
