Su Teatro got its start forty years ago as a student operation at the University of Colorado Denver. After that, it moved to numerous facilities around Denver, before finally settling in the Denver Civic Center, at the heart of the Arts District on Santa Fe. This is an ideal base for the company, since it’s Denver’s historic Latino neighborhood. Su Teatro rents out the facility to groups of all kinds, but it also puts on its own, award-winning shows. Over the years, it’s produced more than a dozen full-length shows that have toured the country.
