In 2014, the 25th anniversary of Teatro Máscara Mágica (TMM), traditionally considered one’s “Silver Anniversary,” marks a bright new era for TMM.
While exciting new developments are in progress, such as our residency with the La Jolla Playhouse, a renewed energy from our dedicated Board of Directors and the formation of our first Advisory Council, what will not change is the focus and commitment which served as the foundation for TMM. With the intention of creating a nonprofit “Theatre Company of the People,”TMM started as a culturally diverse, community-based team of artists and supporters of the arts; an identity it maintains today through educational and inspiring productions such as Let the Eagle Fly, and La Pastorela―San Diego’s longest-running professional theatre production.
TMM is distinctive in its belief all races, creeds and cultures should have the opportunity for artistic expression and experiences of the highest quality―particularly in the realm of live theater, and in its mission to subsidize ticket prices to make live theatre affordable to families and the less affluent.
We are reminded of how many people and organizations have supported us along the way in these last two and a-half decades, offering their generous gifts of time, talent and resources. These patrons and devoted friends are what make Teatro Máscara Mágica truly a theatre company of the people.
So while we will take time to reflect and celebrate our first 25 years, be assured that we will be looking ahead to continuing to bring our community the magic of live performing arts.
