Historical Note

Penumbra Theatre Company is the largest professional African American theater in the United States. Founded in 1976 by Lou Bellamy, the theater is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, in the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center. Since 2014, Lou Bellamy and Sarah Bellamy have served as Co-Artistic Directors.

Since its inception, Penumbra Theatre has explored and documented African American life and history. Its mission, guided by traditions of the Black Arts Movement, is to present artistically excellent work from an African American perspective. It was the 2000 recipient of the Jujamcyn Award for development of Artistic talent. Penumbra is known nationally for its deep and unique collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson, and has produced more plays by August Wilson than any other theater in the world. Penumbra is also known for its commitment to social justice through its art and educational programming, including the Summer Institute and the Race Workshop. Notable Penumbra Theatre Company Members include 
Horace Bond,
 James Craven,
 Abdul Salaam El Razzac, Seitu Ken Jones, Marion McClinton,
 Greta Oglesby, 
Faye Price, Claude E. Purdy, T. Mychael Rambo, Dennis W. Spears,
 Thomasina Taylor-Petrus, and Austene Van. In addition to Lou Bellamy, notable directors include Claude Purdy, Marion McClinton, Sanford Moore, and Dominic Taylor.

Lou Bellamy is the founder and co-artistic director of Penumbra Theatre. During his thirty-eight year tenure, Penumbra has evolved into one of America’s premier theaters dedicated to dramatic exploration of African American life. Under his leadership, Penumbra has grown to be the largest theater of its kind in America and has produced 39 world premieres, including August Wilson’s first professional production. Bellamy is an OBIE Award-winning director, an accomplished actor, and for 38 years was appointed as an Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance. Select directing credits include plays at Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Arizona Theatre Company, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Penumbra Theatre, Signature Theatre, Cleveland Playhouse, Guthrie Theater, Kennedy Center, Indiana Repertory, Kansas City Repertory, Gem Theater, Round House, and Hartford Stage. In 2006, he was awarded a McKnight Distinguished Artists Award and an Honorary Doctor of Arts degree from Hamline University. He is a member of several professional organizations, including Black Theatre Network, Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers, and the College of Fellows of the American Theatre.
