The New Millennium

The New Millennium Howard Players Theatre Company is an exciting theater company comprised of “seasoned” alumni of the esteemed Howard University Theater Department.    

Building on the distinctive legacy of Howard University’s historical Department of Theater Arts, The New Millennium Howard Players mission is to present compelling theater from the African American cultural perspective that will illuminate the black experience, past & present, not only for the purpose of entertainment, but to foster understanding and enlighten, touch spirits, challenge thought, educate, inspire and spark discussion long after the curtain goes down. 

While our productions will illuminate the artistry of talented alumni who honed their crafts within the coveted walls of Howard University’s Theater Department and cut their teeth on the historical Ira Aldridge Stage, our doors will also be open to fellow thespians from the community at large. 

We will also be a platform for emerging playwrights and those looking to return to the theater.
