The funding for the construction comes from a $2.6 million bond the troupe acquired in 2006. As a component of the proposal for the bond, the troupe will also start an incubation program where it will house smaller arts programs within its building rent-free for a year. This year, Latino theater group Teatro Bravo will be the resident company and will debut its first show at the Washington Street location this March.

"I think it's going to be a great partnership," Hemphill says. "Two of the Valley's only ethnic theater companies working with each other."

The Black Theatre Troupe's presentation of The Whipping Man opens of February 8 at The Black Theatre Troupe Center for the Performing Arts, 1333 East Washington Street. For the 2013-2013 schedule or to purchase tickets visit the Black Theatre Troupe website.
