Ebony Theatre


Ebony Theatre works to expose the community to black theatre, and the rich and complex literary heritage of African Americans.

Ebony Theatre was created to feature the work of African American playwrights or pieces specifically about the struggles associated in the lives of African Americans. Established at K-State in 1977, Ebony Theatre is one of the only collegiate theatre companies in the region devoted to this cause.

The organization is run solely by students with the guidance of faculty advisors.  Funded by the Student Governing Association, Ebony Theatre presents at least one full-length production each year in the Purple Masque Theatre.
