At Theatron, our mission is to empower ​and enrich our community through ​accessible and inclusive theatre ​experiences. We are committed to ​breaking down barriers and ensuring ​that everyone, regardless of social class ​or income status, has the opportunity ​to engage with the transformative ​power of theatre. We firmly believe that ​theatre is not just a means to fill seats, ​but a vehicle to cultivate community ​health.

At the heart of our mission is the ​promotion of diversity and the ​celebration of all voices. We actively ​create opportunities for minority ​artists to express their craft, fostering ​an environment where their unique ​perspectives are valued and ​showcased. Through our work, we aim ​to present free and high-quality theatre ​that serves the public's benefit.

Our productions go beyond mere ​entertainment; they serve as platforms ​for meaningful dialogue and ​exploration of diverse experiences. We ​embrace and amplify the artistic ​contributions of individuals from a wide ​range of cultural heritages, LGBTQ+ ​identities, genders, religious ​affiliations, political ideologies, body ​types, and functional diversities. By ​doing so, we aim to inspire empathy, ​understanding, and connection among ​our audiences.

Join us at Theatron as we strive to make ​theatre an inclusive and accessible art ​form, breaking down elitist barriers and ​ensuring that everyone in our ​community can experience the ​transformative power of live ​performance.

while the arrival of Professor Stone ​and his much younger husband, ​Angelo, ignites a complex web of ​desires, regrets, and uncertain futures, ​all set against the backdrop of ​untamed vineyards and a family clause ​that binds their destinies in

Vaña in Paradise.

Ramon Suzara attended California ​State University, Fullerton's B.F.A. ​Theatre Performance program ​where he performed in several ​main stage productions. Most ​recently, he appeared as Gus in ​Theatron's debut production of ​The Dumb Waiter. He was also ​seen in the world premiere of​ Sustained Release at The Larking ​House in Anaheim, CA, and in P3 ​Theatre’s production of Love! ​Valour! Compassion!, which was ​nominated for the Best Ensemble ​award by Broadway World. He is ​excited and grateful to be ​developing his artistry at Diana ​Castle's The Imagined Life Studio. ​"I'm in love with this art form. To ​be able to experience humanity ​through infinite perspectives ​teaches me so much about ​empathy and compassion. I ​understand the responsibility I ​have with being an actor and I do ​not take that for granted."

Ramon accepted this role in The ​Dumb Waiter for “the opportunity ​to shine another light on this story ​and dig for some deeper insights.” ​He adds, “The Dumb Waiter is one ​of those stories that leaves you ​with questions and searching for ​answers. . . I think it’s important to ​retell this story with fresh eyes so ​that we can ask ourselves what ​else in this work can we discover ​about today’s society and what ​can we learn about ourselves?”
