Red Tape Theatre announces the first show in our 15th Season – THE SHIPMENT by Young Jean Lee, directed by Wardell Julius Clark, associate director Sydney Charles.
We believe it essential to the welfare of our community that its members are able to see the world from multiple perspectives. Red Tape Theatre challenges audiences to think differently by disrupting expectations and by redefining the boundaries of the theatrical event. We apply our unique visual aesthetic to the social, political and cultural stories of our time, creating immersive and thought-provoking experiences for our audiences.
We are a free theatre.
We are an immersive theatre.
We are a theatre of images.
We are a theatre of ideas.
Beginning in 2018…
“The public interest is best served by the free exchange of ideas.” – John Kane
Red Tape believes that access to the arts is essential for our community’s ability to engage in a free exchange of ideas. As an art form, the immediacy of theatre provides a powerful platform for this exchange. We strive to remove the barriers that exist between our community and an increasingly commodified culture. Starting in January of 2018, we will offer all of our quality theatrical productions to the public free of charge.
Red Tape Theatre is committed to the creation of new and experimental work through collaborations with our ensemble, playwrights, musicians, dancers, and visual artists. Red Tape’s plays invite our audiences to re-imagine their world and serve a vital purpose in our community: to arrest attention and create empathy.
Red Tape Theatre prides ourselves on providing a supportive home for our artists and administrators. We are working to create a team of innovative thinkers, working across disciplines to create risky theatre. It is recommended that you see a Red Tape production before submitting.
