About

True Colors is more than a theatre company; we are dedicated to forging new pathways to support Black creatives. In the upcoming season, we will proudly present “In The Pocket” by Gabrielle Fulton Ponder, a celebration of Atlanta’s Neo-Soul movement. Amplifying Black voices is central to our mission; the Drinking Gourd consortium commissions and premieres works by leading Black Playwrights nationwide. Entering the third year of The Next Narrative Monologue Competition, we continue nurturing young talent by equipping students with the tools and mentorship to foster success. Our connectivity programming nurtures enduring partnerships with community leaders and organizations, collaborating with MARTA, the Atlanta Beltline, and Home Depot Backyard to bring impactful programming to diverse audiences.
