Introducing Homecomings with The 5 & Dime



Our theatre community is strong and vibrant because of the many thousands of theatre artists who have contributed so much of themselves to make Jacksonville an extraordinary city for the performing arts. Many of these artists continue to work here and many artists are now working in different communities, further highlighting Jacksonville as an important and shared part of artistic journeys.


We are thrilled to introduce our new Homecomings with The 5 & Dime series! In this series, artists with ties to Jacksonville who are working nationally as theatre professionals come home to join and lead our local artistic community in explorations of our craft.


Opportunities will include:

  • Topical conversations

  • Workshop sessions

  • Professional Development

  • Classes

  • Resources

We look forward to welcoming you and these artists into a space—in person, virtual, or a hybrid of the two—to create a community of shared knowledge, opportunities, and insights in the pursuit of access to theatre education for all. The Homecomings series will officially launch in June.


Calling Artists

If you are an artist with ties to Jacksonville and are now professionally working in the field elsewhere, we would love to chat with you and see if there is an opportunity for your participation in this series!
