Pregones Theater / Puerto Rican Traveling Theater
Pregones Theater is a Bronx-based ensemble whose mission is to create and perform original musical theater and plays rooted in Puerto Rican/Latino cultures, and to present other performing artists who share our twin commitment to the arts and civic enrichment. Founded in 1979, the company is known for creating plays with dynamic visual and rhythmic character, mining connections between theater and popular culture, and galvanizing multiple generations of artists and theater-goers. flagship programs are mainstage, Presenting, Education and Touring. Since 2005 Pregones operates its own professional theater in the heart of the South Bronx Cultural Corridor.
Pregones presents artists working in theater, dance, music and related disciplines. The primary goal of our Presenting program is to give a diverse home audience an opportunity to sample the full range of contemporary performing arts. Artist compatibility with our mission is crucial in the selection process, as are scheduling and budget.
