Perhaps you’ve heard; there’s a new arts organization in Austin and it is being helmed by some of the most influential, accomplished and award winning theatre artists in the city and region. Spectrum Theatre Company, Austin’s only African American theatre company, is the brainchild of Billy Harden, Ed.D, Janis Marie Stinson, Carla Nickerson and Jacqui Cross, who collectively and individually have graced not only the stages of Austin, but many national stages as well. We are professional entertainers of the highest caliber, appearing not only in theatrical productions, but additionally in the mediums of television and film. We are on a mission to provide the Austin area with professionally rendered productions representative of the many shades and nuances of the African American experience.
