These works include the World Premiere production of Silvia Gonzalez’s EL VAGON (Boxcar), which won the 2004 Repertorio Espanol’s NuestraVoces national playwriting competition, the 2011 West Coast Premiere production of Rudolfo Anaya’s BLESS ME, ULTIMA, and the 2013 World Premiere stage adaptation of the classic Mexican novel and film, MACARIO.
Teatro Visión regularly provides free performances via partnerships with more than 100 local schools and organizations. as well as teatro training programs for artists, service providers, and educators.
