For the very first time in our forty-two year history, The Billie Holiday Theatre is reaching out to our extended family and asking for help. The past few years have been rough financially for the theatre, so we are launching our first fundraising campaign entitled Back The Billie!

Your contributions will also help us to continue and expand our services and artistic endeavors including our free play reading series New Voices, additional staff support, and special events for Black History Month.

Perri Gaffney in The Resurrection of Alice
The New Voices Reading Series takes place at 7:30 on the first Tuesday of each month from October 2013 through July 2014.
The Billie Holiday Theatre New Voices Reading Series looks to discover new playwrights in order to help get their work seen and produced. The reward for being selected is that one of the readings from each season will be selected for a full production at The Billie Holiday Theatre during the following season.
The series started in the fall of 2011.
Past participants that have received full productions include The Resurrection of Alice by Perri Gaffney (reading in 2011, production in 2012) and Finding Home by Keline Adams (reading in 2012, production in 2013).
Other readings in the series include: Retrospect for Life by Dominique Morisseau in 2011, Iced Out, Shackled and Chained by Keisha T. Spence and Mo Beasley in 2012 and The Grove by Mfoniso Udofia in 2013.
Our Next Reading
A racially tense triangle is created, when two Louisiana deputies, one white one black, interrogate a young black teacher on the mysterious disappearance of one of her students. As each minute passes and more information is revealed, we discover that no one is clean.
