Presented by Delaware Shakespeare

schedule & tickets   official site  

For Shakespeare theatre companies that wish to diversify casts beyond a white “default,” two casting theories can be helpful to consider. Color-Blind Casting advocates for casting the best actor for a part, regardless of race. Color-Conscious Casting advocates for not only casting he best actors in a role, but also being conscious of the story that is told by using actors of specific races in specific roles. This panel will consider the positives and negatives of both approaches, with BIPOC actors, directors, and producers sharing their own casting experiences.

Panelists: Newton Buchanan, J Hernandez, Bi Jean Ngo, and Tai Verley

Moderator: David Stradley

Literature & Poetry Theater & Performance History & Culture Virtual
