Shows And Events

The Ovation Circle Giving Society champions the mission of Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company to celebrate black storytelling and embrace bold diverse theatre experiences for all. Join us as we celebrate our Ovation Circle donors and recognize individuals and organizations that positively impact the arts community.

As each generation takes the baton from the previous generation, new heights will be reached. Sadly, many of the achievements of our forefathers get washed away as the years pass on. We discuss how to honor and preserve the accomplishments of past generations while carving out new territory for 21st Century African American men. These conversations are the springboard for the themes and issues presented in the plays we produce. Hosted by Associate Artistic Director, Jamil Jude, the conversations bring subject matter experts and the community together for 90 minutes of sharing and learning.

East Texas Hot Links

July 16 - August 11

It’s summer, 1955, in the piney woods of East Texas where local men wander into Charlesetta’s Top o’ the Hill Cafe almost every night for comfort, solace and companionship. Times are changing, the Klan is active and young black men have been disappearing or turning up dead. This night, Delmus wants to celebrate getting a new job but the other regulars are skeptical. They try to warn him as they joke, feed the jukebox and play cards until betrayal catches all of them and life at Top o’ the Hill is changed forever. *Contains adult language. If you have questions about content please call 404-532-1901 (ext 201).

SHE GRIOTS

2019 – 2020 SEASON

This season, True Colors will celebrate black women storytellers–those who maintain and move our culture forward! Each play in the 2019-2020 season will be written by black women or feature all-black women cast.  “She Griots” is a celebration of black women who uphold our family traditions. These women are our sisters, aunts, and mothers who share stories of strength and empowerment, instilling in us our history, informing us of who we are, and encouraging change and success for the future.
