Authentic Theatre Ensemble, or THE Theatre, was recently established in 2020 to bring exciting and thought-provoking theatre to Central Wisconsin along with arts-based community engagement. We are in the process of becoming a fully recognized 501c3 not-for -profit performing arts, educational, and community awareness organization.

Emancipation Reflection Project
How to participate:
Look for a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation Project at one of the many partnering local establishments, such as UWSP, Schmeeckle Reserve, CREATE Portage County, and numerous private Stevens Point businesses. Or download a copy here.
Find a time to read it in a quiet, natural environment -choose somewhere new!
The Sculpture Garden, Schmeeckle Reserve, Pfiffner or Iverson Parks, or the Green Circle Trail.
Read the Emancipation Proclamation in its entirety.
Accompanying the Proclamation are statements from Black Americans. Reflect upon the words, meanings, and implications of present day for the Black, Indigenous,
People of Color living in our country.
Share revelations or pictures to THE Theatre’s Instagram, Twitter,
and Facebook pages to further promote conversation regarding the topic.
Use the hashtag #EmancipationReflection
CONTACT THE THEATRE WITH YOUR STORIES AND THOUGHTS
THE Theatre is in the process of devising an original piece of documentary theatre about the current Political landscape in Central Wisconsin including the Black Lives Matter movement and its relationship inpredominantly white communities.
It's important to have an authentic representation of all Central Wisconsin voices and their views on the issue.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU:
Who are you supporting in the November election?
If you attended a BLM Protest or counter rally
If you actively chose not to go to any rallies
If you disagree with the need for BLM events or protests
If you have a new understanding of BLM or your role within the movement
If you have become more or less politically actve than you've been in past years.
Stevens Point PRIDE
We are proud to be going virtual!
Although disappointed not to gather to fly our flags together, we feel it's best for the safety of all involved.
So, headed online!
Please enjoy the video celebrating our PRIDE in the diversity Central Wisconsin has to offer.
