40TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON
STILL WE RISE
Four decades of struggle and triumph. Pride and perseverance. Unflinching honesty and transcendent beauty. Penumbra returns with a milestone celebration worth of the heroic past and provocative future of black arts. Join us as a new era awakens for our company and our community.
Penumbra Theatre produces artistically excellent, thought-provoking, relevant art that illuminates the human condition through the prism of the African American experience.
Penumbra’s Let’s Talk Series creates space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. Hosted by Sarah Bellamy, the event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.
Join us for film screenings followed by provocative discussion about the themes. REEL Talks are free, but reservations are required. Each event begins at 7:00pm.
