EMIR Productions LLC (New York, NY)  is partnering up with Imani Community Programing,

a 501(c)(3) from Barberton, Ohio, to form EMIR Productions Children's Theatre (EPCT). Bringing a new kind of spin to children's theatre in Ohio, our founder, Rantea Emir Thompson, is dedicated to creating opportunities to all performers and creatives including, but not limited to her hometown of Akron, Ohio.


Why Are We Different?

Being in Ohio and being a performer can seem like a daunting task, but there are so many talented people who just wish they had a chance. We know that all too well and that is where we come in. By providing professional opportunities for creatives of all ages and all skill levels, we foster positivity, self-confidence in oneself, and the ability to inspire others to never let up on their dreams. Sometimes all we need is that one person to say "You got this!"

Yes this may be a theatre for children, but our goal is to broaden horizons for our performers as well as the audience. Bringing Broadway to Ohio is what we strive to do even from the production side. Our children will have the opportunity to work with people within their community as well as Broadway performers from NYC. You never know who may show up!!
