This dedicated company of performers showcases their talents year-round at a variety of events held in the Richmond Community. Ensemble members participate in weekly rehearsals consisting of training in theatre, music, and dance. Lead by Director Allison Beckett and Music Director Ryan Blevins, the SPARC Touring Ensemble gains experience performing in dynamic settings, building the adaptability and composure necessary for live, public performance.

Touring Ensemble members audition for the group every year around August. For more information regarding the group or for performance inquiries, contact Allison Beckett at abeckett@sparcrichmond.org.
