Robey was founded in December 1994 by Danny Glover and Bennet Guillory to fill a void of opportunity for Black theatre artists. Black playwrights in particular have long lacked a forum where their work can be developed in collaboration with their peers. Robey works to remedy these voids.
Robey is a non-profit organization and relies on the support of donors and the support of volunteers.
Our daily operations depends on the generosity of talented individuals, like our volunteers who give their time and talent to the Robey. We wanted to give a big thank you to the current administration volunteer roster, Yi Zhang , Christopher Jones and ReSheda Terry. Thank you for you hard work and dedication. We appreciate you.
A special recognition goes out to Christopher Jones who has received a full scholarship from San Francisco State University. We are proud of you Chris, go get them!
Resheda D. Terry is a native of Pine Bluff, Arkansas! She started training in piano and dance lessons at an early age where she quickly discovered her passion for performing. While attending a performing arts school in elementary, she immediately joined choirs and over the years found her greatest join in acting. Graduating with a degree in Biology, with plans to enter the health care profession, ReSheda soon realized how that same salve could come through storytelling. That’s when she decided to move to NYC and train at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. She furthered her training at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco which has led her down to LA. Since moving, she has booked short films and most recently an upcoming web-series, Nice Guys Finish Last.
