Peñasco , NM, 87553


Located in the beautiful mountain town of Peñasco along State Road 75, the high road to Taos, stands the Peñasco Theatre hand built in 1940 by Amado Roybal. Its 16 in. adobe walls were crafted from the dirt in the backyard. From community gathering place to old time movie theatre to youth circus/visual art workshops and live performance space, the Peñasco Theatre Collective, a group of performers and visual artists that call the theatre home, continue the tradition of utilizing the arts to bring people together in a mutually respectful culturally diverse environment. We host year-round arts programs including youth summer arts workshops, in-school and afterschool circus arts programs, circus classes for adults, community events, professional performances, and artist residencies.
