THE GROVES

At Cal Shakes, we believe that equality is a practice. Our actions – both onstage and off – can have a positive social impact by exposing oppression, addressing historic injustices, and showing how power can be transformed  and shared in different ways. We endeavor to dismantle systemic bias by actively including, reflecting, and creating opportunities for our diverse Bay Area communities. We recognize that this work is ongoing and often imperfect, but we are committed to facilitating respect for the many facets of the human experience.
