Our Mission

Empowering local Latino artists to create, produce and promote professional theater in English, Spanish, bilingual and Spanglish.

Providing a voice for Latino  artists as well as Latino communities by sharing culturally and socially relevant stories through our innovative programming, workshops, and initiatives.

Our Philosophy

Founded in 2010, eSe Teatro honors self-definition and inclusion, striving to represent all the colors in the "rainbow of brown" of our Latinidad. Our affiliated artists range from immigrants to U.S. born, Spanish-speaking and non Spanish-speaking, representing cultures and heritages from all over The Americas and Caribbean.

Our Work

Exploring language, shared history, and cultural roots, through adaptations of classics as well as new works and script development.
