Cara Mia Theatre inspires and engages people to uplift their communities through transformative Latinx theatre, multicultural youth arts experiences and community action. In 1996, Eliberto Gonzalez co-founded Cara Mia Theatre because he believed that Chicano literature and its writers should be more accessible to the general public. With Adelina Anthony, Gonzalez started the company as a vehicle to bring the Mexican-American experience to Dallas stages. Since its founding, the cultural breadth of Cara Mia Theatre's plays have expanded to include all Latinx people living in the United States. In addition to its theatrical season, Cara Mia Theatre offers a robust youth arts education program in the form of after-school residencies, bilingual touring productions, virtual offerings, and Cara Mia Theatre's flagship program, The School of YES!, provided after-school and during the summer. Cara Mia Theatre strives to delve deeper into engagement by curating events and conversations geared towards community healing, learning, and strategies for action. Now it it's 25th season, Cara Mia Theatre has grown into the largest Latinx theatre in Texas and the four surrounding states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
