Drama Gets Real – Playa Del Carmen Theater

Riviera Maya Theater

Once Again Playa del Carmen is the center of attention, with the recent inauguration of the theater of the City, it has been proven that cultural activities have a major importance for travelers and locals. Playa del Carmen Theater offers great options for families who enjoy everything that is related to the cultural richness of Mexico.

Live shows and classic music, many talented International and local artists gather here to impress with incredible performances. The theater of the city is rapidly becoming a must see and it is definitely one of the favorite spots to visit while vacationing in Riviera Maya.

Supporting Young Talent

Kids at the Theater

The master minds who put together the monthly schedule and staff in general, are continuously looking for great local and international talent but there is definitely one main goal for them; to search and promote young artists by letting them freely perform at the theater. The place has become an important platform for local young artists since it opened its doors on August 2015.

Many local schools have green light to use the theater for their shows and visitors seem to like the idea of new and young talent. The Theater was originally open as an answer to a local request from Playa del Carmen families, who wanted a new option for local families to enjoy weekends together. And with no doubt it has been one of the greatest ideas for travelers as well.

Entertainment For All Ages

Riviera Maya Jazz Festival

The diversity of shows is just as exquisite as the talent of artists who perform in them. The itinerary is continuously improving to make sure every show catches a different audience; one day you can take your kids to watch a puppet show, the next one you can grab your spouse and enjoy an adult comedy and the next one you and your friends could witness the most incredible Mayan dance.

The theater has also been the host for many important classic and International concerts. Tributes, concerts and famous events such as Riviera Maya Jazz Festival. Let´s just say it´s impossible for you to visit this place with your entire family and have one of them bored. The upcoming shows can be seen at the main website of Playa del Carmen Theater.
