History & Vision

Metta Theatre began work in Taos in 1999.  Our mission is to promote all aspects of local theatre, with an emphasis on working with young people, middle-school through 20’s in age.  We offer a free young person’s weekly acting workshop, provide acting/creative writing classes at no charge in local schools, and twice weekly at the Taos County Juvenile Detention Center.  We support the work of local playwrights with readings and productions, regularly produce both original and published plays, and make our 36 seat black box theatre available to other acting companies both local and touring, as well as to area schools.
