Fusing Original Eastside Austin culture with the New... The Santa Cruz Theater is a unique gem in the constellation of Austin performing arts venues. Since 1984, the Santa Cruz Theater has hosted a diverse spectrum of live theatrical performances and has been home to numerous grassroots arts companies, such as the AZTLAN Dance Company, among others.
Santa Cruz is an intimate venue for cultural performances, workshops, and classes that capture the nuance and diversity of Austin’s dynamic cultural arts community. As a community-centered performing arts venue we highlight human interaction, education, and cultural guardianship in order to nurture a greater humanity. Fashioning a healthy and generative creative ecology we explore what it means to be an Austin citizen while celebrating difference, diversity, and inclusion as pathways to forge the traditions of tomorrow.
