The JPETE Theatre Company exists to strengthen the quality of life in
the City of Houston and surrounding communities by offering a wide
range of performing arts and cultural programming and education.
As a merger of the theatre and the performing arts, The JPETE Theatre
Company aims to create live theatre that educates, enriches and
inspires young audiences and their families of all backgrounds. We also
strive to promote opportunities, in a safe space, for artists to express
themselves through the domains of the visual and performing arts. A
key priority is ensuring the accessibility of theatre to all communities:
from promoting access through education and opportunities, or just
enjoying theatre as an audience member.
The vision of the JPETE Theatre Company is one where,
theatre and the performing arts are well-produced
representations of various communities and are
accepted as a steady contributor to a diverse society.
The JPETE Theatre Company produces and supports
extraordinary theatre and performing arts experiences
that inspire and empower cultural identity, by telling
authentic stories of the African Diaspora.

The JPete Production Company was started in July 2014, operating
solely out of Texas Southern University. The company provided an
outlet for TSU Music/Theatre students to gain performance experience.
The first production in December 2014 “A Christmas Jubilee Concert
Series” was a small tour around several local churches as well as the
surrounding community. The following year, in December 2015, we
premiered “An International Christmas Celebration” at the Deluxe
Theatre. At the closing of the show, we immediately went into
rehearsals for “The Retro Revue” which premiered with rave reviews in
June 2016, also at the Deluxe Theatre. On Cinco De Mayo (May 5)
2017, we produced our very first Dinner Show, at Ragu & Pesto Italian
Restaurant to an almost sold out audience.
Your donations help us to achieve our mission by supporting our production of
quality live theatre, as well as providing opportunities and educating our
community in all aspects of the performing arts.
