Since 1984, The Guadalupe Theater has been an epicenter for the creation and presentation of contemporary Teatro Chicano and Latino Theatre. Numerous world premieres, festivals, and local, regional, and national productions have been staged in our historic 300 seat theater. We are proud to carry on the work of the talented and dedicated artists who laid the path for us to follow. The Guadalupe is committed to developing a world class Theatre program that gives voice to the Latino, Chicano, and Native American experience while providing a platform for new generations of artists to practice and develop their craft.
