Founded by Tarik Jones and Ambrosia Nightingale, New Renaissance Theatre Company aims to diversify the theatre community at Northeastern by producing plays with a focus on representation, especially for students of color and minority group members. Their goal is to make theatre-making accessible to marginalized students in a collaborative and friendly environment, regardless of experience.
New Renaissance produces one main play each semester. Additionally, New Renaissance hosts events such as Workshops and Bonding events.
