"I feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing WFT production, and to once again be surrounded by a WFT cast that so fully represents our wonderful audiences - all of humanity.
I have loved the story of Shrek from first seeing the film when it came out in movie theaters. The message of acceptance, and that love comes in all shapes, sizes and colors is a message WFT fully embraces, with its mission of inclusion and diverse casting policies since its inception in 1981.
From my first job at WFT back in 1985, Glinda in The Wizard of Oz, I knew I had found a place where I truly felt welcome and belonged – a true family. I have enjoyed being a member of many casts here at WFT that reflect the diversity of Boston in all aspects - race, age, gender, and individuals with disabilities."
