About

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.

 

HOW WE DO IT:

  • Affordable Productions and Workshops of New Plays by or about women and people of color;
  • Community-Based Plays developed and performed by community members;
  • In-School and Out-of-School education programs;
  • Productions of Classic Plays re-imagined for a contemporary audience.

 

WHY WE DO IT:

  • Theatre is everyone’s birthright, onstage and off.
  • Ithaca-based theater practitioners deserve an artistic home.
  • Our obligation to emerging American playwrights is to produce their plays, not just develop them.
