San Antonio – The Public Theater of San Antonio has announced the creation of a “resident company” which will be made up of actors from San Antonio.
In a press release on Thursday, the theatre’s executive artistic director, Claudia de Vasco, said: “The purpose of the resident company is to secure and develop professional talent by offering them employment contracts and access to training resources – essentially by establishing a “home crew” of professional actors by the San Antonio community.
De Vasco said the company was also created to cultivate local talent and encourage them to stay in the city when looking for work.
“We believe that by supporting local talent through this initiative, we will demonstrate the Public Theater’s commitment to local economic growth, prioritizing job creation for local San Antonians, investing resources in our talents and retaining the wonderful creators from this culture-filled city,” said de Vasco.
The theater will release more details about the company’s selection process at an upcoming press event, where they will reveal the shows selected for the upcoming season.
