A THRIVING HOME FOR ADVENTUROUS THEATER ARTISTS & AUDIENCES
WBGO Interview with Brandon J. Dirden and Crystal Dickinson
Join us for a LIVE WBGO interview in the Marion Huber Theater with Wine in the Wilderness Director Brandon J. Dirden and actress Crystal Dickinson!
WINE IN THE WILDERNESS
As an uprising rocks his Harlem neighborhood on a hot summer night, artist Bill Jameson is more focused on finishing his latest work: three paintings representing three types of Black womanhood.
A Little Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet
Celebrating ten years of engaging young theater artists with the work of the Bard!
LIVING & BREATHING
The impulsive purchase of some provocative art – a living Latino man who is paid to behave as a statue – shatters a multi-ethnic friend group by sparking questions of commodification, stereotypes, and complacency.
ROMEO AND JULIET
The classic tale of star-crossed love is infused with contemporary vitality by playwright Hansol Jung (Wolf Play, Wild Goose Dreams, Cardboard Piano).
We believe that arts education promotes two central goals: supporting the artist within each student and building future audiences. We inspire empathy, risk-taking and a sense of adventure; and we support academic achievement and life-long learning.
We believe that the essence of theater is democratic: it invites us to encounter, consider and perhaps adopt other points of view, if only for a brief time in a darkened theater. We aspire to build an environment in which artists, audiences, employees, and Board members from different backgrounds and experiences together form an institution that is equitable, diverse, and inclusive.
