 About Us 

Kuumba's History . . ..

Founded by Rosalyn M. Gaines, in 1991, the Kuumba Ensemble is the first African American theatrical company based in the southwest corridor of Baltimore County.  The Ensemble began its legacy under the auspices of Rev. Dr. Vashti Murphy McKenzie at Payne Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church located in west Baltimore. Since its inception, the Ensemble has grown from a small church-based theatrical troupe into a full-scale community theater that specializes in productions (secular and non-secular) that uplift, celebrate and preserve the African-American experience.



Artistic Affiliation

The Kuumba Ensemble enjoys collaborative partnerships with educational entities such as Baltimore City and County Public Schools, Baltimore City Community College, faith-based facilities, and other privately owned venues where it showcases many of its productions. Until the ensemble secures its own facility, it will continue to utilize theatrical space throughout the state of Maryland. The location of each production will be listed on our season schedule. Kuumba's theatrical season begins in February and runs through December.
