As Latinos and Latinas today we take pride in our work, and the results of our efforts translate into providing new resources while serving the community we live in. Teatro Público de Cleveland (TPC) started in 2013, opening more doors for our Latino community. I joined TPC in 2014 as an amateur actor, and had never done anything like this before. Now, in my 5th year with the company, I have acted, stage managed, created new plays, directed, curated, and promoted the development of new work by TPC! And as I serve as the Chair of Teatro Público de Cleveland’s Leadership Committee, I feel proud and eagerly encouraged to continue our growth. We are growing in theatre not only as actors, writers, and directors, but also by taking all the in-between opportunities that are leading us into a self-sustained ensemble, which is the path Cleveland Public Theatre and the community have been supporting from the beginning.
