Opera Cultura presents
La Escuela Technical Theater Classes
January 11 – March 29, 2022
Hoover Theater, 1635 Park Ave., San Jose, CA 95126.

Through La Escuela Initiative, young people of color will receive training as performing artists and in the area of technical theater production.

Opera Cultura will provide work opportunities for participants by employing 1-4 qualifying students from La Escuela for all mainstage productions. Qualifying students will be those who have met all criteria (attended all sessions, learned the necessary skills, etc.).
