Ensemble Company: Committed to the principle of ensemble performance through the collaboration of a company of actors, directors, designers and playwrights, RSP’s mission is to advance the vitality and diversity of American theater by nurturing artists, encouraging repeatable creative relationships, and contributing new works and revitalized pre-existing work to the national canon. Rising Sun Performance Company realizes this goal by providing a safe artistic home which stimulates risk-taking without limits of genre or agenda.
Ensemble members are expected to carry a part of the responsibility of the fundraising, artistic and production quality and be committed to the success of the entire season. Ensemble members are REQUIRED to participate in Production, Show Run, Design, Marketing & Fundraising for the entire season. The commitment level is to the company/full season and not individual productions or performances. The Ensemble is NO PAY; profit sharing is possible based on the success of the season
We are committed to building a creative and dynamic ensemble that celebrates individual differences and diversity and treats everyone with fairness and respect. RSP does not discriminate in providing opportunities on the basis of an individual's race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran status, disability, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local regulations.
