Teatro Palo Alto

Teatro Palo Alto is the producing arm of the Palo Alto College drama program. There are four shows per season, with two shows during the fall semester and two in the spring. The department operates out of two theatre spaces: a 400-seat auditorium and a 100-seat black box theatre.

Teatro Palo Alto strives to create high quality theatre experience for the bilingual, multicultural community in South San Antonio. Diversity, including gender, is also a cornerstone to our vision, with at least half of the productions each season being written by women. It is crucial for the health of the community to see itself represented in popular culture and the arts. Teatro Palo Alto seeks to bridge the representation chasm that exists in the arts.
