Seeking Watsonville Youth Ages 8-15 to Participate

El Teatro Campesino artists return to Watsonville this summer with a FREE YOUTH TEATRO PROGRAM

“Teatro de Nosotros” is a two part summer theater program.

Part 1 will be about developing a script and Part 2 will be about performing the original script! Youth can participate in one part or both.

NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

This program will be bilingual (English & Spanish) and is open to youth living or going to school in Watsonville.

Registration will be required in order to participate.

Youth do not need to participate in both sessions, however, if they’d like to, they will need to register for both.
