Calling all actors to be part of Teatro del Pueblo's acting troupe for our 2024 Season of performances and workshops!

 

About us: 

Welcome to Teatro del Pueblo, where the stage comes alive with vibrant colors, stories, and rhythms of Latinx culture! We are a non-profit Latinx theater company on a mission to promote, celebrate, and preserve the richness of Latinx heritage through the creation and presentation of performing arts. 

 

We have a full season of performances, professional development workshops, and programs to support emerging artists. We are looking for talented actors and storytellers to help us be a bridge to connect cultures, and through our differences, create new fusions of diverse cultural aesthetics and perspectives that make us stronger together. 

 

Join us in celebrating Latinx and other BIPOC cultures through the transformative power of theater!

 

Performances:

 

Love in a Time of Hate: A Romeo & Juliet adaptation

A mainstage production at the Luminary Arts Center!

 

This poignant piece explores themes of resilience, love, and unity in the face of adversity. It seeks to own Shakespeare on our terms. Through this story, we aspire to amplify marginalized voices, challenge stereotypes, and inspire conversations that lead to positive social change presenting BIPOC artists with the opportunity to engage with Shakespeare and become conduits of the story for their communities. 

 

Rehearsals:  April 15th - June 18th, 2024

Performances: June 19th - June 30th, 2024

Coco's Barrio Podcast, Season 4

A LatinX audio experience with a satirical flare
