Civic Ensemble

About Us

MISSION:
Civic Ensemble creates theatre that explores and explodes the social, political, and cultural issues of our time. We bring audiences of different races, classes, and experiences together in a public forum on the American experiment. We do this through affordable productions and workshops of new plays by or about women and people of color; productions of plays developed and performed by community members; programs that use theatre as a tool for personal growth, professional development, or community organizing; and productions of classic plays re-imagined for a contemporary audience to deal with contemporary issues.

WHY? Because we believe that theatre is everyone's birthright...onstage or off.

Civic Ensemble was founded in 2012 by three professional actors and theatre educators: Sarah K. Chalmers, Jennifer Herzog, and Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr.
