Our Board of Directors
ICDT! stems from an existing family of theatre lovers bonded by The Belasco Theatre Company where Co-Founders Shayna and Jarusha spent the majority of their childhood. It was through the Belasco experience that their love of theatre grew and the seed of ICDT! was planted. Looking back on the unique experience they were given through Belasco, they know it was an important gift they need to pass on. The friendships and community that develop within a theatre company are so precious, especially in a world where we are linked so tightly with technology rather than ourselves and others. ICDT! is not only looking to develop talented performers, but to give our youth the tools needed to mature into confident, creative adults who will succeed in anything they put their minds to!
