Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Founded in 1965 with social justice at its core, El Teatro Campesino dramatizes the plights and causes of farmworkers and Latinos, and has since expanded its repertory to include an array of productions embracing worldwide struggles. Known primarily as an ensemble theater, the troupe draws upon local talent reflective of the communities whose narratives it brings to life for more than 10,000 audience members each year. A grant to the San Juan Bautista-based company will support its efforts to strategically extend its reach to San Jose, as the company seeks to broaden its base of support and expands its audiences. Likewise, El Teatro Campesino seeks to develop multiple ensembles and expand its training programs.
