Cincinnati Black Theatre Company is growing its "wings"!

After 8 years in our former location, CBTC is finally moving to a space we can call our own..but this old building needs some major work. Your donations will go directly to the renovations of our future home - walls, HVAC, dance studio and more. Donations of any amount [$10 - $100 - $1,000 - $10,000 or anywhere in between] are greatly appreciated! Donors will receive print recognition during this upcoming season.

Since our founding, we have worked with partners and rented space to support our performances, rehearsals and teaching mission. As we look to the future growth and needs of our organization, we need a permanent home: a rehearsal space, a teaching space and a formal studio for our programs.
