2017 Playwrights

We would like to thank Columbus and surrounding cities and states for your support and attendance at this years 5th Annual Columbus Black Theatre Festival 2017.  


  This festival is an opportunity to celebrate the production of  plays about the Black experience written by new and seasoned playwrights.  This year it was also an opportunity to celebrate the life and stage/musical career of our dear Board Member, Savon Ligon, who  tragically died on the opening day of the festival on July 7, 2017.  


 Savon was not only a valued actor, co-director and singer for Mine 4 God Productions, he was also the great-nephew of our founder Julie Whitney Scott.  Savon will be greatly missed by our M4GP family but his spirit will forever be a part of everything that we produce in the future.
