"TST is not only a theatre company that I've belonged to for the past 20 years, it has also afforded me a great many opportunities to grow professionally both on the stage and off..."


Veronica Thompson, Actor/Producer/Director

"There is no doubt that my year -- going on two years -- with TST has made me a more intuitive performer, a more motivated producer, and a more confident person of color. I have never felt such camaraderie as I do here."


Patricia Fructuoso - Actress/Producer

"With so few theatres producing plays by African American playwrights, Towne Street

is an invaluable asset to those of us writing about the Black experience."


Barbara White Morgan, Playwright

"The productions and programs gives me the opportunity to continue to hone in on my skills, experiment,and reach out to industry personnel. TST has provided the resources and forum for growth and expansion; an ever ending tool desired by actors serious about their craft."


Johan Webb, Actor
