About Penasco Theatre
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. More information is here on the Penasco Theatre Web site.
From Santa Fe
Go north on 285 (St. Francis ) out of Santa Fe – keep heading on that all the way to Española and head thru Espanola towards Taos (follow signs) go through Velarde and when you get to Embudo you'll see a right turn onto Highway 75 – there are signs for Dixon – turn and stay on 75 all the way to Penasco (13 miles) – you'll see the theatre on the left side as you go through Penasco – you'll see the huge mural all over the front.
From Paseo del Pueblo Sur/68 in Ranchos, take the 518. At the bottom of the rock wall go right on State Rd 75, curve to the right coming into Penasco. The theatre is on the right hand side.
Editor's note: I was fortunate enough to see this duo years ago in Silver City and they were fantastic, it was a Celtically-charged evening and I even bought their CD! If you enjoy Celtic music it is well worth the drive to the Penasco. ~CB
