The performing arts careers resource Get Into Theater was created as a stand-alone charity.

Launched in May 2019, Get Into Theater has quickly established itself as the leading career information site for the performing arts sector. The initiative specifically aims to reach those currently underrepresented in the theater industry, including those from diverse ethnic backgrounds, low-income households, or those who identify as D/Deaf or disabled.

Over the past two and a half years, Get Into Theater has provided over 40,000 registrants with access to over 5,000 opportunities and had over 600,000 website visits. Over the past 36 months the website has shared opportunities from the National Theatre, Sheffield Theatres, ATG, Chichester Festival Theatre, Theatr Clwyd, Birmingham Hippodrome, Curve Theater Leicester, Lyric Theatre, Belfast and many more.

Today marks the next phase of this one-stop-shop for theater career information, as the company is established as a charity. As a stand-alone charity, Get Into Theater will be able to grow the impact of the organization and how it supports underrepresented people in theater careers, as well as fundraising so that the platform can reach more people who might not have considered a career in the performing arts.

Get Into Theater Director Ahmet Ahmet said: “Today is a day of celebration and marks an important moment in the history of Get Into Theater. I am extremely proud that we are successfully supporting Black, Asian and people with low incomes, D / young deaf and/or disabled people to find out more about theater professions It is essential that young talents from diverse backgrounds be able to access theater professions.

“The recognition of Get Into Theater as a charity is the next essential step in developing the future of this vital resource as an independent support organization for young people who aspire to work in theatre.

“We know that career awareness is one of the biggest barriers to diversity in the theater workforce. Now, as a charity, Get Into Theater can open up its mission and expand its impact for those who need it most. We have big plans at Get Into Theater and becoming a charity is key to making that happen. I urge everyone who has succeeded in the industry to support us, his plans and to help spread the word.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “I am very proud of all that we have achieved with ‘Get Into Theatre’. Founded and funded by my Foundation, following the findings of the independent Center Stage report, this program has helped thousands of young people across the country dreaming of a career in theater and making it a reality. These are the people we desperately need in the arts as we recover from the most difficult time in our history.

“Now, as an independent charity, I hope we can encourage even more people to support this vital work. For those who say they love the arts, it’s time to stop sitting on your hands and to give us your support so we can get more people through our stage doors, backstage and onto our stages.”

Get Into Theater was originally produced by The Stage and created in partnership with the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, UK Theater and the Society of London Theatre. All partners remain active supporters of the charity, but Get Into Theater is now a stand-alone charity.
