For too long we have heard "well there just aren't any out there." or, "we tried, but it just didn't work."

Production on Deck began as a resource to consolidate the many tools used across the country to identify talent from marginalized communities and has grown into a full-fledged talent and consulting firm. Helmed by David ‘dstew’ Stewart, with partner Sarah Lozoff, and consultant Bear Bellinger, Production on Deck seeks to expand the traditional idea of the talent pipeline and increase pathways for marginalized communities to access jobs in theatrical production. With a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, Production on Deck broadens the definition of “the best person for the job” to one that welcomes the whole of an individual into a room. Production on Deck has previously consulted for The Repertory Theatre of St Louis, Seattle Children’s Theatre, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, and Intimacy Directors and Coordinators, among others.
