About Us

Black Ice Theatre Co., a 501(c)(3) organization based in South Lake Tahoe, was founded in order to engage audiences through fresh and daring plays that explore themes that are both vital to the modern moment and timeless representations of the human experience. Much like Black Ice itself, our plays will be unexpected - black comedies, intense dramas and plays based on actual events with characters not often represented. We aim to create a safe and artistic space to both entertain and challenge our audiences.

Black Ice Theatre Co. was developed by a group of theatre professionals from different backgrounds based in South Lake Tahoe. Individually, our works have been produced across the country and have been the recipients of many awards.

The times we live in call for a mirror to be held up to society, for artists to push ourselves and for the community to come together and share an experience that might just make us question our own lives, values and behaviors. Black Ice thrives to present these experiences to our audiences.

Theatre is a vital part of the Tahoe experience for both locals and visitors. It brings people together. It helps create empathy. It stimulates the economy. And we need more of it.
