SPT in the Spotlight

In 2019, Thrown Stone will begin its first year of the Actor’s Equity Association Small Professional Theatre (SPT) contract.

We’ve always been a professional company and contracted with union actors, but SPT is a contract we enter with the union as a company, which in addition to making us eligible for certain award recognition, stands as a long-term commitment to the highest artistic and operational standards.

This phased transitional agreement with the union will take place over the course of the next three years. We are grateful to Equity for creating this program for nascent professional companies to help grow their capacity and fulfill their obligations to working actors and stage managers.
