Founded by James Walsh, the Romero Theater Troupe has been performing plays about social justice issues for the past four years. It is a nonprofit organization whose members believe in giving away profits to worthy social and charitable organizations. The group's motto, Social Justice Through Organic Theater captures its focus on issues of human rights.

Organic theater is a raw process involving a collective effort to develop scenes and shape productions. Romero Theater Troupe does not have a director; instead, members rely upon a communal vision and faith and love in each other. Actors are free to shape and to change their characters as they see fit, even from one performance to another. This group share a unique relationship with its audience, seeing them as participants rather than passive observers.
