The Araca Group

Founded in 1997 by partners Matthew Rego, Michael Rego, and Hank Unger, The Araca Group started as “three guys with a dream” - a dream to produce theatre in New York City. What started in a one-room, windowless Times Square office has grown into a renowned theatrical production, screen printing, and merchandise company with over 250 dedicated employees and operations around the world.

As theatrical producers, our mission is to produce entertainment that is artistically compelling to our audiences and financially successful to our investors. As screen printers and merchandisers, our mission is to design and manufacture singular, fashionable products that generate profit for our clients while supporting their marketing strategies throughout the world.
