The Watah Theatre is sad to announce its closure after 4 years of supporting and developing the legacy of Black Theatre through the production and cultivation of Black & diverse works. BUT this is not a time to mourn, it is a time to celebrate all that Watah has accomplished in just 4 years!

On June 26, The Watah Theatre will be hosting the D’BI. FAREWELL FUNDRAISER GALA which will feature live performances, music, food and a good old-fashion dance party!

Doors open at 7:00PM and the live performances kick off on the main stage of The Theatre Centre at 7:30PM.

All proceeds from the event will go towards d’bi.young anitafrika’s GoFundMe campaign, helping her further develop the Anitafrika Method at Goldsmiths, University of London, this fall.
