Annual Overview

Penumbra produces theatre roaring with the authentic, complex & unrestrained voices of African-Americans. Through the years we have earned national accolades, producing nearly 200 plays, over 30 premieres & training generations of artists of color working across the nation. Since 1976 every play on our main stage centers black life with stories written & directed by people of color, & brought to vivid life onstage by black artists. No theatre in Minnesota houses such acclaimed programs while devoting itself to nurturing black creative thought. Our decades of devotion to the black performing arts community have contributed significantly to the diversification of regional and national stages.

Year-round we serve an audience of 25,000 through main stage productions, equity training, and educational programming
