Maryvale Theatre Arts Department Hosting a High School Theatre Group from Colorado

Posted by Community Relations on 9/30/2015

The Maryvale Theatre Arts department is hosting a high school theatre group from Colorado, Thursday, October, 15. The Greeley West High School El Teatro Program is a multi-lingual, multi-cultural theatre company. Its shows are conceptualized and performed by Greeley High School students.

The show highlights cultural pride, the benefits of knowing more than one language, and the idea that people are more alike than they are different. The script is based on El Teatro members’ true experiences as well as those of their families and friends.

Each year, the show travels locally to numerous conferences, events, and state level programs. This year, they received an invite to perform on campus at Arizona State University. While in town, they reached out to Maryvale Theatre Arts teacher Patrick Shanahan for the opportunity to perform for high school students.
