Theatre South Playhouse - Diverse Leadership Pipeline 


To address board vacancies and succession at our region’s nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, United Arts created the Diverse Leadership Pipeline to help the entire arts and cultural sector recruit new members.
This program will help connect individuals who may be a good match based on their interests and skill sets, with local arts and cultural nonprofit organizations. It’s designed to help ensure the leadership of Central Florida’s arts and cultural community reflects its diverse population. Without diverse people included in the decision-making process of our boards, we will not reach our vision that all people of Central Florida have access to the arts.
1. Review the cultural organizations’ profiles below, and then 2. Complete the application at the bottom of this page or on the organization’s profile page!

If your nonprofit arts and/or cultural organization would like to be included, please reach out to Sean Thurman, Marketing & Communications Director at United Arts: Sean@UnitedArts.cc.

We are seeking diverse representation. Currently, our board lacks diversity in many ways. The racial breakdown of the board is predominately white with most members being parents of children that have grown up or are currently engaging with our educational programming. Additionally, we need more members that are passionate about theatre, but who come from different lines of business. We would love to engage more local business owners. Finally, we would love to engage more members passionate about supporting our non-profit through volunteering and engagement.

  • Give or get $500 per member. In-kind donations are welcome when they fill a need (for example some board members have donated props, archival videos, etc.)
  • Our board meets monthly for an hour long meeting that can be attended in-person or remotely. We prefer if members come in person, but we understand this is not always possible. Additionally, we ask that Board members come to see our mainstage season (2-3 shows per year).
  • Currently, our only committee is our Development/ Fundraising committee, but part of our recruitment efforts include recruiting members that want to take the initiative and form committees for other areas of support for our company.
  • We are currently in the process of searching for new Board members and we accept nominations all year. However, we place emphasis on recruitment from December-February.


The mission of Theatre South Playhouse is to nurture, challenge, and empower our artists and audience in order to inspire and educate our Southwest Orlando community. We strive to create a safe space for artists of all backgrounds to gather together with the common goal to teach the values of mutual respect for all.
