From chicken coop to top dog?

New Village Arts (NVA) is now celebrating its 19th season of award-winning professional theatre, thrilling and unique visual arts, and thriving education and outreach programs.

NVA attracts over 15,000 patrons to Carlsbad Village to experience professional theatre in its intimate, 100 seat house. Located adjacent to the theatre is the Foundry Artist Studios. This incubator for the visual arts features 16 studios for painters, photographers, woodworkers and more. NVA also has a robust Education and Outreach program, including documentary theatre programs in local high schools, improvisation classes for both teenagers with special needs and seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and Teatro Pueblo Nuevo, an outreach program to our bi-lingual and bi-cultural community.
NVA has truly become the cultural hub of North County San Diego.
