Teatro Pueblo Nuevo


Season Seventeen at New Village Arts marks the first year of programming for TEATRO PUEBLO NUEVO, NVA's new bilingual and bicultural outreach initiative. TPN features Latinx-centered community outreach events and theatrical productions at New Village Arts.

TPN began its programming with the Hispanic Heritage Month Celebración in September of 2017. This event celebrated the presence of Latinx culture in San Diego with interactive art by Foundry Artists and a dance floor that got everyone up and dancing! It featured performances by Melba Novoa Flamenco, a presentation of Cuban rueda de casino by EscoRueda, and the youth group Sonares de mi Tierra from the House of Panama in Balboa Park.

In December of 2017, TPN produced its first show, the all-ages bilingual musical CINDERELLA EATS RICE AND BEANS: A SALSA FAIRY TALE by Karen Zacarias with music by Deborah Wicks-La Puma, directed by Associate Artistic Director Nadia Guevara. Thanks to sponsorship from Wells Fargo and The Loftin firm, this show was presented as a free event for our community.

In January 2018, CINDERELLA presented an encore performance at the Dove Library Schulman auditorium, thanks to support from the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office.

Now, we are thrilled to present the first TPN mainstage production, CLOUD TECTONICS by the Oscar-nominated José Rivera, directed by Herbert Siguenza of Culture Clash and Pixar’s Coco.

TPN would not be possible without the support of our community partners: Mana de North County San Diego, Tierra Caliente Academy of the Arts, and the Cal State San Marcos Latinx Center.
