It is a great honor to be in a building that was built in 1876 and maintained in awesome condition by Kings County and the Kings County Historical Society. Not only that, just down 14th going north is where the famous Mussel Slough Tragedy (gunfight) occurred in 1880.

Hanford Multicultural Theater Company strives to bring the world of theater and improv to a diverse community. Founded by national playwright, Silvia Gonzalez Scherer and great assistance from her daughter Camia Scherer (Managing Director), she hoped to bring to Hanford a little taste of her theatrical experiences. Established in 2016, HMTC continues to grow in both members and community participation. Not only that, Silvia launched it's first annual, Dia de Los Muertos Event in 2017 which has been adopted by the entire city to become an annual event. Members of HMTC and community members 'Hanford Dia de Los Muertos Organizers' work in tandem to provide the community a wonderful and fun cultural experience. In fact, an artist who was worked for Disney, and was involved in the touring The Bear in the Big Red House, and recipient of the Eugene O'Neil Puppetry Festival, was flown in to make a giant calavera puppet to enhance the event. (Thank you Mark Saltzman from Chicago!) HMTC has done two Hanford Monologue Slam competitions (2018, 2019), and produced three stage plays and formed Udderly Improv for the community to enjoy.
Our classes are free, which means that anybody can come and go as they please. Those who have joined us find joy and excitement as they meet new people and help each other grow in their abilities. Our class allows for people to develop necessary life skills thanks to improv: meaning we can help ease those nerves if you're unsure of how to get an interview for a job!
If you are too shy to act, that is ok! We encourage guests to sit in during our acting class sessions, and when ready, they can join in on the fun any time!
