About the Theatre Guild of Ancon

Our Mission:
To stimulate an interest in dramatics and associated arts by the study, practice and production of plays in the English language, for and by our members and the public at large.
Our Vision:
To redefine the spirit of community theatre in Panama, while maintaining the actor as artisan tradition; promote the performing arts, provide a stage for performers to present their works in any language, and to instill the principles of excellence in all actors, directors and technical personnel in Panama.
Who we are:

The Theatre Guild of Ancon was founded in 1950 by a group of Panamanian and American citizens who were interested in developing English language theatre in Panama. Our productions run the gamut of the theatrical spectrum – from modern, controversial dramas, to comedies and family entertainment, to musicals. Our stage has been the first step for performers such as Robert Loggia and Ruben Blades, and for successful directors such as Bruce Quinn. The Theatre Guild of Ancon is now the longest running theatre in Panama with the closing of the National Theatre of Panama in late 2015.

Why you should join:
The Theatre Guild of Ancon is the only voluntary working theatre of its kind in Panama. We provide a training ground for the future performers and technicians in the theatre arts, a place for everyone to exercise their creative muscles, and a place for those who seek quality theatre in the English language, to enjoy. It is our intention to provide a creative avenue for all.
