About the Community Tour
North Carolina Stage Company Community Tour is dedicated to bringing dynamic professional performances to audiences who traditionally experience barriers to attending live theatre. Venues have included homeless shelters, correctional facilities, community centers, low income senior centers, rural schools, and locations throughout rural Western North Carolina. The Community Tour also offers a series of ticketed performances for audiences at NC Stage.
Members of the Community Tour Ensemble are artists committed to equity, integrity and excellence for audiences of all experiences and backgrounds, as an ensemble and within themselves. We will be performing in a wide variety of spaces, with all the lights on, and with only what we can easily carry in terms of props and costumes. Live sound and music will play an integral role in how the story is told.
The Community Tour is inspired by the work of Ten Thousand Things in Minneapolis, MN. Interested artists are encouraged to research Ten Thousand Things, their founder Michelle Hensley, and their model of performance to decide if this opportunity is right for them.
The 2020 Community Tour is funded in part by the North Carolina Arts Council Rural Outreach Grant.
