Heritage Theater Ensemble

Heritage Theater Ensemble

Heritage Theater Ensemble is an organization of students committed to the continuation and evolution of Black theater on Yale’s campus and the New Haven community. We hope to be a contribution by bringing the rich voice of African American dramatists to fruition, while creating a unique atmosphere wherein students and supporters of Black theatre can network, learn, and come together in a comfortable environment.

Mission: The purpose of Heritage Theater Ensemble shall be to foster the development of Black theater in the Yale-New Haven community: to provide a forum for the expression of Black (and other minority) talent in all aspects of the performing arts and to generate and promote a collective, artistic consciousness within the organization. Similarly, Heritage Theater Ensemble’s promotion of artistic endeavors within New Haven shall be a means of developing and sustaining Black (minority) arts as a means of politicizing art-production within the local community.

The Heritage Theatre Ensemble is…
An effective and affecting ensemble–
A powerhouse for new work–
A community of artists–
A history rediscovered–
Whatever we make it.
