An afternoon of live music, performances, food, raffles and more!

WHERE: Teatro Paraguas, 3205 Calle Marie Suite B

COST: $15 suggested donation at the door (includes one raffle ticket)

Join us at Teatro Paraguas's Fundraiser Celebration, an exciting and fun-filled event dedicated to supporting our Hispanic and Latinx community theatre. 

Performing at the fundraiser will be Melange, a long-time Santa Fe jazz fusion band anchored by JoJo and Jeff Tarnoff.  Compania Chuscales & Mina Fajardo bring their spicy flamenco dance once again to the Paraguas stage, and Ballet Folclórico Xochitl adds a note of festive color.  The Paraguas Ensemble will stage the bilingual cuento (folktale) Rattling Chains, adapted from a story by Santa Fe's author and historian Nasario Garcia, and a preview of the poetry from ¡Viva México!, a work in progress celebrating Mexican poetry, music and dance in honor of Mexican Independence Day coming to the Paraguas stage in September.

Participate in a thrilling raffle for a chance to win fantastic prizes. Your presence and contribution will help Teatro Paraguas continue staging contemporary award-winning Latinx plays, promoting children's theatre, showcasing the works of New Mexico playwrights, and celebrating the rich diversity of our state's artistic talent.

Teatro Paraguas needs your support to continue its mission of preserving and promoting Hispanic and Latinx theatre. By attending our Fundraiser Celebration, you'll not only have a great time but also play a vital role in sustaining our organization. Help us celebrate the history, richness, and diversity of New Mexico's artistic heritage while ensuring that future generations can enjoy the magic of the performing arts. Join us and make a difference in the cultural landscape of our community.
