Event description

Description

The Ensemble Theatre premieres two one-act plays written by Actor/Director TiMOThY ERiC.


Jimmy, a play centered on public school closings, is a picture of some of the circumstances surrounding the state of public education and the rising privatization of schools. Jimmy is directed by Actor/Playwright Cynthia Garcia and stars Byron Jacquet, Lakeisha Randle, Kurt Bilanoski, and Michelle Harrell.

ParaChute is an immersive theatre experiment where a man, facing the demise of his own planet, leads a daring voyage to a nearby exoplanet! ParaChute is directed by Director/Actor Manning Mpinduzi-Mott and stars Timothy Eric, Carmen Williams, and Renae Wilson. ParaChute is happening right now on Instagram #Para_Chute. We invite you to follow the story and post your comments!

Tickets are $10 at the door (cash only). You can reserve seats for purchase at the door via RSVP here at Eventbrite!

Celebrating the Creative Journey is generously funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
