Arts & Culture

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT) has announced its 22nd anniversary 2021-2022 season, with the Maya Angelou-inspired theme, “And Still We Rise.” In addition to four regular-season offerings – including two one-act plays under the umbrella of its New Playwrights Series – WBTT will present a holiday show. Running from October 6, 2021 through May 29, 2022, the regular season shows are “Eubie!” “Ruby,” “Broadway in Black” and world-premiere one-act plays “From Birmingham to Broadway” and “Float Like a Butterfly.” The holiday show is “Joyful! Joyful!” “As the only professional African-American theater in the region, we take our mission to promote and celebrate the African-American experience very seriously,” said WBTT Executive Director Julie Leach. “As part of the #SafeArtsSarasota group, and with a professional on staff to oversee Covid-19 protocols, we will endeavor to provide a safe, thought-provoking and entertaining season. We will continue to look for opportunities to provide live and streaming video options, so that all who wish can have access to our work.”
