2015-16 Season

We proudly announce a season of LOVE, SATIRE AND BETRAYAL for our 21st season under the artistic leadership of acclaimed Bay Area actor and director L. Peter Callender. The season opens in October with ROMEO AND JULIET directed by Sherri Young and L. Peter Callender. William Shakespeare’s iconic story of young love, passion and innocence is set in the 70s when the world was changing socially and culturally. But undying love dances in the vivid imagination of youth then as now. In December we usher in the holidays with African-American Shakespeare Company’s CINDERELLA. This production has been delighting audiences for over twelve years and this year will be directed by ShawnJ West. The season continues in February with George C. Wolfe’s THE COLORED MUSEUM. This poignant, socially-conscious, satirical comedy is a depiction of black culture in America. For the first time in the Bay Area, our own “Fantastic Four”—four distinguished directors, collaborate to bring 12 vignettes to life: Velina Brown, L. Peter Callender, Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe, and Michael Gene Sullivan. Closing the season is William Shakespeare’s ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA where a queen must seduce the one man who can crumble her fragile empire. Jon D. Tracy directs this epic love story with L. Peter Callender in the title role.
