Over twenty professionals have been named to the Artist Advisory Council (AAC) representing actors, producers, directors, and industry leaders. The AAC will help Epic further its goal of empowering young people by connecting them to professional theatre-makers.
Council Members will work directly with the young people Epic serves in special workshops throughout the year at Epic’s new space within the Theatre Row complex on 42nd Street, mentoring students in theatrical skill development. They will also act in an Advisory role to steer Epic’s leadership toward new opportunities for these young people to engage in professional theatre, both as audiences and as emerging creators.
Recognized and handpicked by Epic’s Co-Founders for their commitment to social justice and their understanding of the critical role the arts play in education and youth development, each member has demonstrated a desire to reinforce and advance Epic’s mission of transforming audiences and students from passive bystanders into active participants, forging a more inclusive and collaborate vision of America.
Epic Theatre Ensemble is honored to have these critically acclaimed individuals stand alongside them in their efforts to develop a socially-minded society where theatre fosters awareness of current civic issues that affect under-represented communities.
