Artist Council

In looking to honor our legacy as the oldest community theatre in the Twin Cities, and continuing to grow into the next phase: Theatre in the Round is seeking to engage artists who wish to participate in a collaborative monthly committee developing over the coming years and into the future.

The Artist Council will be a group of dedicated and motivated artists at TRP who will be ambassadors for the theatre in the larger community. The Council will help conceive and create new programming at TRP including but not limited to: new work, digital programming, educational opportunities, and more!

The Artist Council will help foster successful partnerships and build lasting relationships with other Twin Cities artists and theatre organizations. The council will provide artists and community members with a safe and accessible pathway to the board for concerns or experiences shared at the theatre. The Artist Council will work closely with existing Season Planning and Community Engagement committees to achieve shared goals of expanded programming, increased diversity among our community  and overall maximizing artist and audience experience at TRP.

We strive for the Artist Council to have intersectional representation including but not limited to actors, directors, designers, writer, producer and additional artistic forms, and individuals from multiple lived experiences.

Applications for Artist Council will be accepted on a rolling basis, reviewed and followed-up monthly by Strategic Planning. You should receive an email confirmation from a member of the Strategic Planning Committee within 2-4 weeks.
