Teatro Paraguas


What We Do
We are open to partnerships with other arts organizations, non-profit service organizations and local businesses, as well as commissions, mentorships, suggestions for programming, comments, and feedback.

Teatro Paraguas' "Son De Domingo" events provide opportunities for poets and musicians to perform in an intimate setting on Sunday evenings. We also make our studio available for classes, workshops, rehearsals, and performances by performers and other theater companies

Our Productions

Our work falls roughly into three categories:

  • Poetry performance series, which honors Hispanic and Latino poets through dramatic presentations of their poetry.
  • Contemporary Latino plays, including plays by New Mexico playwrights.
  • Cuentos series, which bring traditional Hispanic folk talkes to life on the stage.

Since 2008, Teatro Paraguas has produced 15 plays by ten New Mexico playwrights.  We are committed to promoting local writers whose work reflects the Hispanic/Latino/New Mexico experience.
