MISSION STATEMENT

 

JAG Productions was formed with the mission to produce classic and contemporary African-American theatre; to serve as an incubator of new work that excites broad intellectual engagement; and thereby, to catalyze compassion, empathy, love, and community through shared understandings of the humankind through the lens of the African-American experience.

 

In each production we are committed to the following:

  • Selecting excellent work

  • Attracting exceptional, diverse actors to the Upper Valley

  • Engaging and shifting the community

"In this contemporary moment where we are constantly being made aware of the deep divisions that keep us segregated & siloed from people who do act, think, talk or look like us - it is crucial NOW more than ever that we build, encourage & support theaters that reflect the diversity our nation and our world. Our stories desperately need to be told."

ABOUT JAG PRODUCTIONS

 

Founded in 2016, JAG Productions was formed by Producing Artistic Director Jarvis Antonio Green with the mission to produce classic and contemporary African-American theatre; to serve as an incubator of new work that excites broad intellectual engagement; and thereby, to catalyze compassion, empathy, love, and community through shared understandings of the humankind through the lens of the African-American experience. JAG Productions sees itself as playing a role in bringing diverse actors and stories to the stage and to the Upper Valley. JAG Productions is one of the nation's leading incubators of new works by Black playwrights and in its inaugural year won the New England Theatre Conference's (NETC) Regional Award for Outstanding Achievement in the American Theatre. In 2017, the company launched JAGfest, an annual festival of new works celebrating the talents of African-American playwrights, which has already launched an Off-Broadway production. https://www.jagproductionsvt.com\
