The New Millennium

The New Millennium Howard Players Theatre Company is an exciting theater company comprised of “seasoned” alumni of the 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 to illuminate the black experience, past & present, not only for the purpose of entertainment, but also to foster understanding, enlighten, touch spirits, challenge thought, educate, inspire and spark discussion long after the curtain goes down. 

While talented artists that honed their craft within the coveted walls of Howard’s Theater Department and cut their teeth on the historical Ira Aldridge Stage are the foundation, our doors are also open to fellow thespians in the area.   We will also be a platform for emerging playwrights and those looking to return to the theater.
