Yellow Door Theatre Project seeks to create experience for life for Niagara youth through drama and musical theatre education. We exist to foster a safe and supportive community for learning, performance and collaboration.
We believe in upholding every participant’s right to be themselves, while celebrating our diversity and maintaining an environment for safe rehearsal, education and performance.
For us, “safe” has two meanings. As a teaching studio, we want to provide a safe environment for our students to learn and develop new skills. We accomplish this by setting clear safety guidelines for all students, staff, and participants to follow.
Safe also means that we want all Yellow Door Theatre Project students, teachers, and audience members to feel comfortable in our studios and at our events. We want people of all ages, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, physical appearance, body size, race, and religion to feel comfortable with taking a class, performing in a show, working with us, and otherwise engaging with our community.
We want you to know is that if something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable at one of our events, no matter how minor it seems, you can report it to us and we will take action.
Harassment of Yellow Door Theatre Project students, staff, and performers will not be tolerated and anyone violating this policy in a class, at the studio, or at a performance may be be removed, or, in extreme cases, banned from further interaction with the Yellow Door Theatre Project community. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments or attitudes related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion; deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of the event, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Please know that Yellow Door Theatre Project views neither ignorance or intoxication as an excuse for harassment. If anyone engages in harassing behavior towards you, the Yellow Door Theatre Project Studio Directors will take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or banning them from future classes and events. If you feel you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Yellow Door Theatre Project Directors at
Yellow Door Theatre Project will be happy to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe when engaging with our community.
While we would like to feel that we offer an environment in which you can voice concerns about incidents as and when they happen, we also welcome you to reach out to us to inform us of past harassment or incidents related to our events which made you feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
Yellow Door Theatre Project also acknowledges that we are not above our own policies so please know all of the above applies to all members of our collective (owners, Studio Directors, Managers, teachers, staff, and performers) in equal measure.
All communication related to this policy will be dealt with in confidence.
