Civic Ensemble is pleased to announce that applications to participate in the
ReEntry Theatre Program’s 2018 Production are now available!


The ReEntry Theatre Program is an opportunity for those who have experienced incarceration at any time in their lives to take part in an arts-based program. Those returning from jail, prison, or a drug rehabilitation program welcome.


The group has been meeting weekly on Mondays at Day Reporting and have been building a new play about Family and ReEntry. Rehearsals for the 2018 Production will begin the first week of March 2018. We will rehearse two weeknights and one weekend day for the month of March. In April, this will increase to 3 weeknights and 1 weekend day until the final week of rehearsal when we will rehearse every night.



Performances will take place May 4-6 at Kitchen Theatre Company.
