Earlier this year, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT) was thrilled to be featured on an episode of WEDU PBS’ “Arts Plus” program; this segment received a 2020 Suncoast Regional Emmy nomination from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. This month, WBTT will be featured in an hour-long documentary on WEDU/WEDQ, titled “This Light of Mine, The Making of Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe.”
The program, which will premiere on December 17 and be shown five times in December, will feature interviews with Nate Jacobs, the founder and artistic director of WBTT, and many of the people who have been part of the troupe’s story over the past two decades. It will also include exciting show footage.
“This Light of Mine, The Making of Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe” is produced by WEDU PBS in partnership with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with generous funding from the George J. & Alice Pugh Donor Advised Fund.
