Welcome to That
Uppity Theatre Company's website. Our
name reflects who we are. Bold, brave, willing to step outside the
status quo in order to instigate social change, promote civic dialogue
and produce transformative theatrical art of the highest quality for
people of all ages.
Like most groundbreaking endeavors, we don’t fit very well into a neat
category of description. Sometimes, we perform in gymnasiums, other
times in corporate board rooms. We have even performed in a car wash.
Since we began in 1989, our work has taken many forms in response
to the needs of the times. Currently, we focus on creating commissioned
work about social issues for corporations, schools from elementary through university-level, and social services agencies.
In other ongoing projects, we also pair amateur actors and seasoned
professionals to create work about the lives of underrepresented
People with disabilities.
