The Horizon Theatre presents a variety of plays written by and about women.

All performances at this theater are in Spanish, but simultaneous English interpretation is provided for select performances at no cost. Also available during weekend matinees are child-care services, by reservation only. Group rates are available.
American Century Theater is dedicated to producing American plays from the 20th century that have especially influenced our society and culture.
