About Us

Started in 2016 as an idea, our founder, Rantea Emir Thompson, was wondering how she could help to shift the way individuals perceive people of color in the world. Using theater as the medium, she would facilitate this conversation with a group of actors from all walks of life. They talked about their experiences and why they were feeling discouraged in a career they loved. Having learned that she wasn't alone, she decided to start producing shows that would give everyone no matter what ethnicity, age, or gender an opportunity to lift their spirits and play roles they normally would not get cast in. Putting on her first show in 2017, she felt this community could be even more than she imagined. Bringing like-minded people on board, who want to help their fellow actors make it in the professional world, is all she ever wanted. Emir means "Prince" or "Governor" in Arabic, but most of all it is her middle name. EMIR Productions' motto "For Artists By Artists" is an amazing way to say Artists come together to build our community up, so that other Artists can be a "Governor" over their careers.

Say No to "Starving Artist-ism"

This "made-up" concept has been taught to performers for years. EMIR Productions wants to let go of the old ways, and usher in a new way of training. Our Teaching Artists have been handpicked to provide quality classes at an affordable price. At EMIR Productions, we believe no one should have to sacrifice their ability to live life for the sake of the craft. Say no to "starving artist-ism".
