About the Event

Enjoy a creative evening of readings of new works—both with the Bard as a base. The evening includes an abridged, bilingual (Spanish) version of William Shakespeare’s iconic Romeo and Juliet created in collaboration with Pima Community College. Then it’s Andrew Rincon’s, I Wanna F*** Like Romeo & Juliet—a queer love story of epic proportions that investigates God and mortals, realism and fantasy, and the shame and joy within queer love of color. 

NOTE: Recommended for ages 18+ due to adult topics and language. 

UCAT Summer Series — The Summer of Love explores love in all its forms, from readings of classic stories retold with a BIPOC perspective to musical explorations and cabarets. There is something different and new in each presentation. 

United Colours of Arizona Theatre  

Founded in 2016, United Colours of Arizona Theatre began with a Facebook group attempting to create space for BIPOC individuals to convene, network, learn, and thrive within the local fine arts community. The members of United Colours of Arizona Theatre unequivocally support all social justice initiatives, and as ARTivists, their mission is to encourage a more equitable landscape within the local theatre community by creating opportunities for workshops, dance classes, audition prep, and more. 

With the communities it serves, United Colours of Arizona Theatre has come to realize there is a lack of access to formal dance training, classical theatre training, and vocal lessons. The organization’s initiative fills in that gap by providing workshops to help BIPOC creatives feel prepared in and out of the audition room. The goal is to create a theatre that truly reflects the community.
