Mission Statement

The Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center celebrates, nurtures, presents and preserves African American performing arts and cultural legacies.

Description

The center provides a unique opportunity for all citizens of Seattle, from various walks of life and diverse backgrounds to experience and engage in the performing arts.

Recent offerings include a partnership with the Seattle Youth Employment Program that provides valuable work experience and training in cultural leadership, creative writing, dance, theatre, and theatre production; a production, in partnership with the AFrican ConeXion 09, of "Callejon," an original bilingual musical based on Afro-Peruvian dances and rhythms; and "Hip Hop: Back to its Roots," an in-depth look at violence in our community and its root causes, and an effort to create consensus on its effects and prevention.

The center has a rich history of international theater performances, most recently by the Russian Community Theater Group, led by Pavel Sergeyv; Sub Rosa, performed by Cherrone Wong; and Khamelion Theater, led by Igor Musiyenko.
