Summer Institute is an intensive theatre training program for youth ages 13-18. Students explore “art for social change,” and learn how to leverage their passion for the performing arts to make a real difference in the world. We admit students who can demonstrate leadership, a passion for the arts, and a commitment to social justice issues. This four-week program culminates in an original ensemble performance.

Penumbra’s RACE Workshop combines expert facilitation, a powerful exploration of race in America, monologues from artists, and opportunities for participants to use theatre as a way to problem-solve and model.
“Penumbra Theatre is a classical, historical and, cultural mecca that allows for a platform for Black people to work, create...to thrive as artists.”
