Meet the board
 and why we want to do, what we do.

"Theatre should be available and fun for everyone"

This is our first and founding rule and it will never change! We will never charge a person to perform in one of our shows.  Also with 2/3 of the board of directors made up of actors, we decided we will never do cold reads at auditions. lets face it , no one likes it , its not fair, and dose nothing to judge an actors ability. Auditions are stressful enough, without worrying about new words tripping you up. If you want to audition? we will send you sides to look at. They may not always be for the role you want, But it will give us the best chance of seeing you. and that's what auditions are for.

  Hope to see you at the next audition.


Managing director, IFCT
