About PTE

OUR MISSION: Promethean Theatre Ensemble produces and develops ensemble-focused theatre that uses vibrant language with dynamic and purposeful storytelling. We select a service organization to support and promote with each production, bridging ideas within the play to real-world efforts to address challenges within our communities.

In the fall of 2005, a group of theatre artists founded Promethean Theatre Ensemble with the goal of creating productions that would emphasize rich, vivid language and imaginative storytelling. Over the following years, PTE has evolved into a committed ensemble of artists who collaborate to tell resonant, timeless stories through fresh perspectives in a style that prompts audiences to imagine the world of the play alongside its creators.

 

We at Promethean Theatre Ensemble believe that to be silent is to be complicit. To the people of color we work with, work for, and love – and to those we may never even meet – we express our heartfelt support. #BlackLivesMatter.  We join with arts organizations worldwide to call for an end to racialized violence and the cycle of loss and grief they perpetuate in our families and our communities #StopAsianHate.

We are working at being better. Here are some resources we are spending time with: Black Lives Matter Chicago, Brave Space Alliance, WSYWAT, Anti-Asian Violence Resources, and Hollaback.
