Theater in the Yard
Theater in the Yard includes all the programs offered in the yard — Annual Shakespeare in the Yard and the Summer Theater Program
Ayodele Nzinga, Director
In 2001, the backyard of PJCCE was converted to a 2,000 sq.ft. outdoor theater with seating capacity for 100. Twice a year we offer one theater production by a person of color and an "urban adaptation" of one of the works of Shakespeare, also called "Shakespeare in the Yard."
