Discover the legacy of Padua Hills Theatre and The Mexican Players. From 1930 to 1974 this groundbreaking theatrical group challenged the negative stereotypes of Mexican and californio people and culture, and collected and preserved California aspects of this Mexican culture for future generations. Many of these Players and their families are still available to tell their stories, and we include some of those reminiscences on this site. If you have memories of Padua Hills Theatre and The Mexican Players, please contact us so that we may include them.
