"We were so nimble with our online transition. I am so deeply proud at how quickly we were able to shift our in-person Latinx New Play Festival into an online festival and how we maintained the sense of community despite our physical isolation. We created a space for over 70 Latinx artists to convene and create art. We transcended our geographic limitations and forged new connections with Latinx artists across the US."
"I am so excited to see us implement our new strategic plan. Our goals are far reaching and substantive and I cannot wait to see the ways in which our work will bring them to manifest."
Dr. Maria Patrice Amon, Associate Artistic Director and Latinx Projects Producer
"When faced with no possibility to meet our primary purpose - to share stories live in the theatre with an audience - we created and shared a robust lineup of online work: salons, play readings, interviews with artists, favorite monologues by actors we love - AND we made two films!"
Sam Woodhouse, Artistic Director
"This health crisis has created an even larger budgetary challenge than the typical year for arts organizations. I am proud that San Diego REP is still open, still creating theatre, and connecting with the community during this time of isolation."
"The renewed call to action and demands for accountability from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color has sparked a deeper exploration about how we need to change in order to really live up to the mission of San Diego REP and truly make our organization equitable, diverse, and inclusive. I am excited to see how the EDI focused strategic plan we have created will impact every aspect of who we are and what we do. It is inspiring to be involved in such an important evolution."
Danielle Ward, Associate Artistic Director and Literary Manager
