About the Austin Latino New Play Festival and Teatro Vivo:
Now in its fifth year, the ALNPF provides an opportunity for playwrights to hear, see, and receive feedback on their original works. The festival format brings playwrights together to work with a dramaturg, director, and actors to bring a play to life as a staged reading in front of an audience. The rehearsal process for each stages reading is approximately one week in May, with the following week for tech and performance. The staged readings are workshop-style presentations.

Teatro Vivo has produced more than 25 bilingual plays since JoAnn Reyes and Rupert Reyes founded the company in 2000. Teatro Vivo is proud to be a resident company with the Latino Arts Residency Program at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.

Contact Dolores Díaz at for more information.

This project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at

Inspired by the power of theater to both educate and entertain, Teatro Vivo produces and promotes Latino based theater that provides a window into the Latino community and makes theater accessible to all audiences, especially those under-served in the arts.
