Purpose Statement

The purpose of BlackC.A.S.T (Black Community & Student Theatre) is to provide practical experience on all aspects of live theater (artistic and technical), with assistance from those knowledgeable and/or experienced in the dramatic arts, in an educational and recreational atmosphere.

These goals shall be achieved through the sponsorship and production of plays, workshops and other theatrical endeavors, which are in keeping with the spirit of the aforementioned goals. From BlackC.A.S.T., several of the largest productions on campus have been formed, including Eleganza. Our membership across all productions and activities consists of over 130 students. Membership in this organization shall be open to all students in good standing currently enrolled in Harvard College, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or ability status.
