Santa Fe’s Theater Company for the 21st Century
Providing theatrical training and variety to our community
The mission of Santa Fe Performing Arts is to serve the community as a tool for education, to address the issues of our time and place, to collaborate with other social service organizations, and to teach theater to individuals of all ages, while maintaining a professional resident company committed to excellence, in a venue that welcomes innovation and variety. SFPA fosters a wide range of productions, from start to finish, with a constant eye on the needs and interests of the community.

1. The On-Site Performing Arts Educational Program: After-school and summer classes in drama, music and dance for children ages 3-19:
2. The Educational Outreach Program: Reaching into the community through direct partnership with public education institutions throughout Northern New Mexico, making performing arts available through the public school system where it no longer exists:
The Adult Company: Providing the community with a professional resident company committed to artistic excellence, to create opportunities for New Mexico theater artists to work in a professional environment, to form collaborations with other performing arts companies and community organizations and heighten awareness in the community about current social issues.
