This company has been able to attract very talented individuals from Mexico, Argentina, Peru. The overwhelming response from the local artists in the area who want to participate, act, sing or compose songs for Theater Nahual is a true inspiration. Our goal is to unite all Latinos through the arts and we are very happy that it is already happening. Future plans include the creation of an Academy where acting classes can be given as well as training in all of the other arts. The Latino community could come and learn in it’s own language, without any barriers or other handicaps.
