That Uppity Theatre Company's name reflects its character -- bold, brave, and willing to step outside the status quo in order to instigate social change, promote civic dialogue, and produce transformative theatrical art of the highest quality for people of all ages.

Since That Uppity Theater Company began in 1989, its work has taken many forms in response to the needs of the times. Currently, the theater company focuses on creating commissioned work about social issues for corporations, schools from elementary through university-level, and social services agencies. In other ongoing projects, That Uppity Theater Company pairs amateur actors and seasoned professionals to create work about the lives of underrepresented populations such as people with disabilities, GLBT adults and youth, people with Alzheimer’s and early onset dementia, women with cancer, supporters of reproductive choice, and at risk youth.

That Uppity Theater Company performs in such unconventional spaces as gymnasiums, corporate boardrooms, and even a car wash.
