Inclusive Theater of WNY (ITOWNY) seeks to reimagine our society through producing Broadway, off-Broadway, and original scripts, holding acting, theater, and writing workshops, and through the performance of work with actors who are chosen solely on their ability, commitment, and passion.

Our dream is not only to be a place where diversity is the norm, but also to challenge societal perceptions of difference and begin to create a world in which people are accepted and encouraged to contribute to society, no matter their age, physical condition, race, nationality or gender.
