Duende’s Mission is to educate, inform, and entertain. We do this through the dramatic arts and the various disciplines that go into creating dramatic and literary works. Particular emphasis is placed on performances depicting the history of California and its relevance to life in the twenty-first century.
Duende’s plays bring to life important moments in history, showing common people rising to make difficult moral decisions. The following plays are in continuous production or can be made ready to perform in a short period of time. Our focus for these plays is on school performances. Each is about forty-five minutes long, is coordinated with the curriculum, and has study guides available.
Duende offers a menu of plays and dramatic readings for family and adult audiences. Some can be presented at museums, campfires, etc. Others require a theater with light and sound equipment. Some are under an hour in length. Others are full-length.
