ECAS Theater

The mission of Teatro ECAS is to promote theater as a viable form of self-discovery, within an urban multicultural community, with particular emphasis on children and young adults.  Through creation and presentations, participants discover hidden talents and build self-confidence. As the largest independent professional Spanish-speaking theater in New England, with a 24- year history, we aim to elevate and enrich our Southside Providence community through the power of the arts and culture.
