We are Kelsey Forward.


Kelsey Forward Initiative is committed to actively assisting Kelsey Theatre of NJ in advancing an environment of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in all productions and programs offered by the resident theatre companies.

Our Vision

The Resident Theater companies at Kelsey Theatre commit to following principles of

color-conscious casting at every stage of the production process, including the selection of production team personnel and throughout casting.


We acknowledge the need for growth and are committed to learning from our past mistakes.  We aim to foster an inclusive environment for people of all races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, creeds, socio-economic statuses, nationalities and abilities.
