"Equity"* for Community Theater Actors & Staff. Finally
The Volunteer Theatre Actors' Association, a charitable organization, was founded to advocate for the needs of non-equity, volunteer, and low-wage theatre actors; and to support the community theatres they perform in.
Specifically, our goals are to advocate for community theater actors by: 1) ensuring that the theaters they perform in adhere to basic standards of health, safety, and care; 2) obtaining funding / contributions to provide actors with support to help them flourish personally and professionally; and 3) working with community theaters to ensure theaters continue to have the resources and cooperation necessary to develop engaging theatrical experiences for the benefit of their communities.
