Teatro San Diego aims to produce musicals and employ a truly "All-American" cast. We are color conscious. Our purpose is to raise the visibility of the underrepresented communities of San Diego and bring theatre physically closer to the people with less access to the performing arts. We strongly believe that more female artists should be in prominent positions in the arts: directing, writing, choreographing, music directing, lighting, costume, scenic and sound design. Theatre belongs to all genders, races, differing abilities and sexual orientations.
