This new and exciting Bilingual program (English and Spanish) is designed to introduce children to the unique style of Chicano Theatre known as “Teatro”. Once known as Teatro de la Jente (Theatre of the People), students develop performance skills by creating scenes and stories through the use of their own personal experiences and their perspective of the world around them. Together, under the leadership of professional Teatro Workshop Leaders, they will create a Showcase Production that will affirm the importance and dignity of the local Latino experience. Teatro can enable people to view their lives in new ways and explore their common human experience.
