RTA’s CARE Coalition aims to mobilize Broadway and regional theaters (onstage and off, from both sides of the table), college and university training programs, summer theatre programs, teen programs, teacher training, and the world of private voice and acting teachers.

 

Rather than prescribing change onto an ever-evolving industry, we want to shift the industry with the people who are shaping it. We intend to continue to evolve together to best serve the entire theatrical community, and strive to always keep everyone engaged in the latest changes. 

 

In addition to Audition Technique for musicals, "Rock the Audition" aims to mobilize equity and mental wellness in the theatre industry-at auditions, in production, at college and university training programs, summer theatre programs, teen programs, teacher trainings, and the world of private voice and acting teachers.

We started where we believe the greatest change and the greatest transparency can be found, in college students.

In February of 2020, Rock The Audition piloted The CARE Coalition. CARE stands for Creative and
Artistic Equity, and the branches we piloted in NYC in November became the fertile ground for healing at Oklahoma City University’s Wanda L. Bass School of Music.  As of this September, OCU CARE welcomes Millikin CARE, Arizona State University CARE, and MORE to the family! And we’ve also launched our BRAND NEW Body Empowerment Branch!

THE LANGUAGE CENTER
The CARE Language Center.png

In May 2021, we met as a team to begin creating The Language Center. This is a place where any casting person, creative team, actor, or coach can check out the most recent palette of language to use to the day of their collaboration with any artist at any time. 

 

We begin work on The Language Center at the crucial intersection between Queer and Disabled.
