HTC is at rest right now because I am writing a play for us to produce. Please stay tuned


We are performing scenes from ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN today at 55 E. Jackson Blvd.; 10th floor conference room, at 6:00 pm. FREE.
We were commissioned to perform it for teens, young adults and police officers. We're still chipping away at all this gang silliness.

With the surmounting issues of violence and crime among our inner city youth, I have chosen to present a theatre production that addresses the common problems that many people are plagued with today. We seek support and encouragement among our community and we humbly invite you and fellow guests to witness the birth of our actor’s ensemble by attending our upcoming production of Charles Fuller’s Zooman and the Sign.

The auditions for Zooman were awesome! There are a lot of talented actors in Chi-town. I just want to say Whoosa! Be sure to come to the Woodson Library on Saturday, March 6th at 2pm to see a reading of Zooman and the Sign.

Keep your eyes on our Ensemble; they're fierce and they attack!

To night was our last Monday Open Mic Nite. I want to thank everyone who came out and supported us. I want to especially thank Ms. Pat, owner of the 24/7 Roast Coffee House on 79th and Exchange Ave for supporting the Harlem Theatre. The Coffe House is a wonderful place to visit and the food is delicious.
