Make A Gift

Like many organizations, Black Ensemble is doing more with less. In addition to producing world-class theatrical productions, we use performing arts to help underserved populations reach their fullest potential through educational outreach programming. Support from the community is more vital than ever before since we transitioned to the new Black Ensemble Theater Cultural Center and expanded our operations.  We hope we can count on your support!
