Penumbra Theatre Company
The mission of Penumbra Theatre Company is to create professional productions that are artistically excellent, thought provoking, relevant, and illuminate the human condition through the prism of the African American experience. Founded in 1976, Penumbra Theatre is Minnesota’s only professional African American theater. We produce a four-show season and several community outreach events annually. Penumbra is known for its signature ensemble aesthetic that plays powerfully in an intimate 250-seat proscenium/thrust theater. Penumbra produces work from within the black theatre canon, both classics and commissions, including new play readings and workshops.
