About Us

Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is a nonprofit theatre based in Atlanta, GA. The name "True Colors" reflects a promise to search for truth and clarity.

Our Mission

True Colors Theatre Company’s mission is to celebrate the rich tradition of black storytelling while giving voice to bold artists of all cultures. When Artistic Director Kenny Leon and Managing Director Jane Bishop teamed up in 2002 to design a new theatre, they envisioned a smartly-managed, inclusive theatre company that would achieve both local and national impact. Thanks to a tremendous outpouring of support, their vision has quickly turned into reality.

True Colors Theatre Company intends to be an important voice in the American discussion of diversity, supporting and propelling individuals and institutions in their quest for understanding. Operationally, the company will strive to remain fiscally sound and small enough that every individual who works there can be heard, be accountable, get better at what they do, and live out True Colors’ core values.
