The significance of The Black Theatre Troupe, Inc. is immeasurable! Since 1970 The Black Theatre Troupe has been a voice of the African-American community. Through its forty-five seasons, BTT has dramatically brought the African-American experience to the stage. As the only professional African-American theatre company in the four-corner states, BTT conducts educational workshops, outreach programs and produces quality plays, while fostering understanding outside the black community and bridging the divisions which have separated people of color from the majority population throughout our nation’s history.
Our company is unique in the City of Phoenix in that it fulfills a need by providing a safe and nurturing environment specific to artists and people of color who are traditionally members of an underserved community. We subsequently serve a varied and wide demographic as well as many diverse socio-economic groups. Our participants and audience base is representative of the state of Arizona. During our last fiscal year at least 46% of our base was non-African-American.
With our increasing growth, popularity and support for our main stage programs, comes added expectations and the responsibility to expand and enhance our youth, educational and community outreach programming that will deepen and broaden our relationship with the communities we serve. The Black Theatre Troupe sponsors several outstanding educational and community outreach programs that include school based programs as well as programs in several Senior Citizen Centers and housing projects.
Live theatre has always had the power to spark revolution and ignite social reform. Audiences know that performances at the Black Theatre Troupe will provoke you to reflect deeply, strengthen your resolve and act on your convictions.
