TEATRX - A Latinx Theatre Company

Mission

TEATRX is a professional theatre company established to advance Latinx performance arts to be a vital and prominent part of the artistic identity of Houston by representing and supporting the Latinx community, its artists, and its stories.

About

TEATRX - A Latinx Theatre Company was founded in August 2018 in Houston, TX.  Founding members include: Benito Vasquez as Artistic Director, Marissa Castillo as Marketing Director, and Jorge Diaz as Development Director. In 2019, we added Ashley Parra as our Production Coordinator. In under 3 years, we produced multiple events, started a fiscal sponsorship with Fresh Arts, received multiple grants from the City of Houston, and brought Latinx theatre to Houston’s stages. True to our mission, TEATRX has built a community of Latinx artists by providing artistic opportunities to over 50 local artists. Our programming gives community ownership of the art that is being created for and about them; sparking inspiration in the community, creating future theatre goers, and perhaps future artists. La Vida Es Cortos / Life Is Shorts, our yearly short play and short film festival attracts a distinctive audience for a one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary arts experience. We draw an audience longing for a place in Houston’s theatre and film scene by curating a lineup that includes multiethnic, multicultural, and multigenerational stories in English and in Spanish that better reflects the majority-minority population of Houston. TEATRX is a sponsored project of Fresh Arts, a non profit service organization. Contributions for the purpose of TEATRX must be made payable to Fresh Arts and are tax deductible to the extent permitted by the law.
