  • Announcing Auditions for the 2022-2023 Season

    Imagination Theater is excited to accept submissions for artists to join our ensemble for our 2022/2023 Season. We are excited to venture into this season, with in-person and virtual performances, and to continue to connect with our partners and community.  

    We are seeking submissions from artists of all backgrounds, with primary consideration given to those with (1) flexible daytime availability, (2) performance and/or teaching artist background, and (3) folks who are excited about engaging audiences (particularly young people) in participatory programming. 

    Additional consideration will be given to artists who are fluent in Spanish.

    WHO IS IMAGINATION THEATER?

    Imagination Theater’s (IT) professional ensemble is a core team of actors and teaching artists who tour dynamic programming to schools & other communities. IT’s distinct style is based on techniques from Theatre of the Oppressed (also known as Forum Theater).  

    The ensemble portrays a series of scenes. When each scene reaches a point of conflict, the show’s facilitator freezes the action and leads the audience in a discussion about what they saw and what they could do differently in the same situation. We then invite an audience member on stage to replay the scene and navigate our actors toward a more positive conclusion. Under the auspices of a social issues role-play, participants become “spect-actors” performing and expressing themselves creatively. By exploring within the safe space of the theater, communities become empowered through the arts.
