Black Theatre Ensemble
The Black Theatre Ensemble is intent on establishing a platform for people of color to express themselves artistically on stage. We seek to uplift playwrights, actors and theatre artists of color. In doing so, we provide an outlet for creative expression, development and community that is largely unavailable on campus. BTE productions are as diverse as our casts, and include student-written works and plays, classics of the black theatre cannon as well as contemporary and experimental pieces. All productions are chosen with a careful eye, as they are meant to foster discussions about a host of issues to all students and people within diverse environments.
