In recent years, there has been a welcome push to cast productions with performers from underrepresented groups, including but not limited to performers living with a disability and performers who are gender-diverse, Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Colour (BIPOC). The ACTRA membership has a plethora of diverse performers to fit every production’s needs.
