Who We Are
The Public Theater of San Antonio creates dynamic professional theatre and arts programming that unites the diverse communities of San Antonio and enriches the quality of life in our city.
Our artistic vision is that we produce high-caliber, masterful theatrical productions that are made in San Antonio, with a style and expression unique to our local culture and theatre, in an inclusive, equitable, and collaborative environment.
Our vision is that The Public Theater of San Antonio plays an integral part in the cultural and economic vitality of San Antonio, uplifting our city as a place where great artists are developed and where great artists live, unifying neighbors and patrons through the experience of theatre.
San Antonio's Longest Running Theatre Company
In December of 2021, The Public Theater of San Antonio produced the 700th production at the playhouse. This theater has been a community center for the arts for almost 100 years, with our original company having been established in 1912, and we are working to develop it as a regional theater center once again, especially as our city works toward economic and cultural growth.
Executive Artistic Director, Claudia de Vasco, has a vision for The Public Theater of San Antonio that includes deepening our connection to the cultural roots of this region through programming, investing in local creative talent, widening outreach to the diverse communities of Greater San Antonio, and upholding and improving the professional quality of our theatrical productions.
