Black and Brown Theatre was founded in the summer of 2016 to address the inequity of casting in the professional Michigan theatre scene and create more opportunities for theatre artists of color. Black and Brown Theatre likes to say "the goal is to fail" and by that we mean, we hope that in the next 5-10 years other theatre companies will employ theatre artists of color so often that we won't be necessary.

We do several performances and showcases through out the year to present to the Michigan theatre scene and general audiences alike.

our story

We have special performances catered to youth that focus on conflict resolution & self esteem and are performed in the schools.
