We believe that art is essential to a democratic society and that art should reflect the diversity of our country's cultural landscape. El Centro Su Teatro is a multidisciplinary cultural arts center that produces, promotes and preserves art and culture that represent the experiences, history, language and heritage of Chicanos and Latinos in the U.S. and the Americas.
Su Teatro is the third oldest Chicano theater in the country (only Teatro Campesino and Teatro de la Esperanza are older). Over 40 years, the group has established a national reputation for home-grown productions that speak to the history and experience of Chicanos. Su Teatro is the only ChicanoLatino cultural arts center in a four state region (Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Utah) that has continuously produced and presented artistic work since 1971.
Su Teatro has created more than 15 original full length productions that have toured widely to venues such as New York's Public Theater, The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, San Antonio, TX, Los Angeles' Plaza de la Raza, and the Los Angeles Theatre Center. El Centro Su Teatro has been nationally recognized for the artistic excellence of its programs through funding from the Shubert Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Theatre Communications Group, and the American Composers Forum.
