The Black Rep has been in service since 1976. We are the largest professional theatre company in the nation, and the largest African-American performing arts organization in Missouri. We are committed to producing quality performances, educating promising youth, and enriching our community. In addition, our company maintains an award-winning education and community program, with classes and workshops for adults, and youth, touring shows, summer performing arts program, and our revamped teen technical program.
We want to continue planting the seed of social awareness; and heighten the knowledge of black theatre. We want to make sure that our youth are granted the opportunity to express themselves through creative outlets, and grow as artist, and individuals.
