Teatro del Pueblo | Rhode Island

The Village Theater for Latinx theater makers

Teatro del Pueblo @RILA was founded in 2016 as a forum for Latinos to develop and present new bilingual plays. Our mission is to provide opportunities for artists, producers and audiences to discuss and advance bilingual Latinx theater in Rhode Island and nationwide.

Teatro en El Verano | 2022

In 2015, RILA formed a partnership with Trinity Repertory Company, out of which was born Teatro en El Verano, a free community-based bilingual mobile theater that takes performances to outdoor places in urban neighborhoods. Every summer since then, the two organizations have joined together to select, adapt, translate and present bilingual plays and to cast local actors who identify as Latino/Latina/Latinx.

This summer, we are pleased to be presenting La Mancha, adapted by Marcel Mascaró and directed by Catia.

Teatro en el Verano originally planned to stage an adaptation of Don Quixote in the summer of 2020, and later in the summer of 2021, but these were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, excerpts from the script were performed virtually via Zoom. La Mancha is the in-person culmination of over two years of work.
