FEBRUARY 5 & 6, 2023

Teatro del Pueblo, Minnesota’s premier Latinx Theater, is producing a bilingual Latino live radio variety show with musical drama. This exciting performance will involve live comedic sketches, music, and will fluctuate between Spanish and English in order to engage and create fusion between communities. Hosted by Latino podcast personality Coco, this show will dish up fun and political satire in a variety show highlighting triumphs and tribulations of the Latinx community in Minnesota.

We are casting performers who are bilingual in both Spanish and English. BIPOC and Latinx actors are highly encouraged to apply. Singing and improv comedy experience is a plus but not required.

LOVE IN A TIME OF HATE

COMING FALL 2023

Love in a Time of Hate is a modern, BIPOC take of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, taking place in the future within what used to be a southern border state.

In the city of Nogales, federal and state governments have eroded, giving way to local political power struggles for control.  It’s a time of chaos and suspicion, and Big Brother lurks, listening everywhere.

It is here we encounter a pair of star-crossed lovers trying to outwit fate bent on keeping them apart as a consequence of their families’ "ideological feud."

"Experimenting with different styles, political topics that represent the struggles of our communities, and creating as a collective are just a few ways Teatro Del Pueblo has embraced and cherished the sazón different artists bring to their work. I am truly thankful for Teatro Del Pueblo as it is a way to make our voices heard and a way to spend a creative time with (as Alberto always says) - !Mi Gente!"

Teatro del Pueblo is proud to stand beside Penumbra Theatre, Mu Performing Arts, New Native Theatre and Pangea World Theater as a member of the Twin Cities Theatres of Color Coalition (TCTOCC). The coalition formed to build knowledge, capacity, and take action around the challenges and opportunities of diversification in the American theatre. We lead conversations, making available the wealth and depth of knowledge housed in our theatres through the dissemination of tools, practices, and consultation to bolster responsible and accountable engagement around the representation of our communities.

“The Work that Teatro does is so vital and engaging.”

-Ebony Adams, Director of Operations, Feminist Frequency, Women In Film
