Through our EDUCATIONAL RESIDENCY PROGRAM, Repertorio believes that students can be introduced to careers in the arts such as acting, playwrights, designers, technicians, and administrators.

The Spanish word dignidad can be translated as both pride and self-esteem. Both meanings drive Repertorio’s education efforts. Since its beginning, Repertorio Español has committed its resources to making theatre accessible and part of the classroom experience with the aim of instilling cultural pride, promoting self-awareness, divulging the riches of Spanish-language theatre.
Through ¡Dignidad! what we hope to accomplish is to create the next generation of theatergoers, or better still, the next generation of theatre artists with a love and respect for live theatre. – René Buch, Repertorio Español’s Artistic Director
