Ep 9: It’s not COULD you do this show…. It’s SHOULD you do this show, w/ Cessa Betancourt

This week’s episode is a doozy. And by doozy we mean “super important and our most relevant to date!” Cessa is back for another fantastic episode all about understanding race and ethnicity in show selection and casting. Are things changing regarding this? Yup! Can you afford to not get on board with the change? Sure… if you want to be left behind, possibly lose your job, and look like an out of touch stubborn director of “the old guard.” But if you’re listening to this podcast… doubtful that’s you.

If you want to learn more about Race and Ethnicity is Show Selection, join us for our April Online Masterclass with Cessa! On April 11 at 1pm CST Cessa will be going over how to select a show based on your student population and how to avoid getting stuck with a show that will cause you issues in the long run.
