SERENBE PLAYHOUSE believes that theatre is an art form with a unique power to illuminate the human experience; and does so by producing artistically rich, open-air theatrical performances for audiences throughout Greater Metro Atlanta. By reducing the barriers between audiences and the artists-in-residence,
the playhouse provides numerous opportunities for engagement, conversation, and collaboration.
Serenbe Playhouse uses theatre as an artistic educational tool for both artists and audiences. A training ground for promising artists, the Playhouse offers high school and college students active opportunities
to work alongside emerging and established theatre professionals. Serenbe Playhouse adheres to the philosophy that theatre is a necessity, not a privilege. Through targeted assistance to schools and youth organizations, the Playhouse broadens access to art and culture, and encourages the involvement of under served audiences throughout the region.
Serenbe Playhouse is a pioneer in modeling Green Theatre Practices by producing plays with a commitment to social responsibility and environmental stewardship. All productions are performed outdoors, in concert with Nature; repurpose existing structures; and use natural light and 90% LED theatrical lighting. Sets are designed for disassembly and constructed with reclaimed and recycled materials with the goal of minimizing a production’s waste and impact on the environment.
Serenbe Playhouse was founded in 2009 under the executive and artistic direction of Brian Clowdus,
an accomplished actor, educator, director and producer. He earned a BA in Theatre & Dance from Amherst College graduating Magna Cum Laude, an MFA in Acting from The University of South Carolina, and is a 2011 Fellow of the world-renowned Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. Established under the umbrella of their parent organization The Serenbe Institute for Art Culture & the Environment, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Serenbe Playhouse operates with the support of a diverse working board of directors and community volunteers.
