Mentoring is the best way to get involved at Barrier-Free and involves direct, on-the-ground work. By taking on the role as a mentor, you are a part of the creative, inclusive theater process. Mentors assist actors on and offstage during rehearsals and shows, model appropriate social interactions, and build deep, meaningful relationships with our actors. Mentoring is the most rewarding, joy-filled work and a great way to give back to the community.
Mentors must be 16 years of age or older.
Mentoring involves committing to at least one Inclusive Theater Company and attending rehearsals from 6:30-8PM, September - March.
"Mentoring with Barrier-Free is the highlight of my week. The joy of seeing these actors bring their characters to life is contagious. No matter what has happened in my day or week, I know that I'll soon be getting my 'Barrier-Free' pick-me-up."
- Barrier-Free Mentor
