About Us

Race is a compelling subject; the dearth of African-American Theatre in Montgomery County, Maryland and the Washington, DC metropolitan area is real; the demand and need is great.

The Live Garra Theatre offers enormous opportunities; endeavoring to illuminate all facets of a multicultural society; fostering cross-cultural understanding of the many ethnic voices in the community and to address universal social-life issues.

Live Garra Theatre, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 organization; an incubator studio established for emerging artists; a core repertory of skilled performers coming together to teach and share a blend of the Cultural Arts.

The Theatre Company features full-length productions, play readings, acting seminars, internships, workshops, lectures, and Q&A discussions.

Live Garra Theatre is dedicated to increasing awareness, preserving the unique legacy of the African-American heritage; contributing to the survival of Black Theatre. Why Black Lives Matter...
