Confrontation Theatre was founded in 2016 by La’ Tevin Alexander Ellis. Beginning as only a virtual project for his Theatre Management course at Florida A&M University. La’ Tevin finished up his undergraduate degree then made his move to Portland, OR as an Acting
Apprentice with the Portland Playhouse. It was there that Mr. Ellis saw first-hand how a young SPT is operated, managed, and sustained. It was also during this time that he noticed a lack of theatre for artists of African descendant. After completing his apprenticeship, the dream to have
a company which will support and attract artists of African descendant became pressing. And so, in the spring of 2016 Confrontation Theatre debuted its first production then finished off the year in the fall. Confrontation may only be just starting but it began with a BANG and plans to be here to stay for a very long time.
