We acknowledge that San Diego Musical Theatre operates on the unceded land of the Kumeyaay. We further acknowledge that SDMT was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many Indigenous people, including those who are the traditional Custodians and First people of the land on which we work, play, gather, share and learn.
San Diego Musical Theatre is committed to providing a work environment that is free of sexual harassment. SDMT believes in and works to sustain an anti-racist environment. SDMT does not tolerate any unlawful harassment based on race, color, gender, gender expression, religion, national origin, ancestry, age medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities or veteran status.
