GALA Hispanic Theatre is a professional Latino theater company that produces and presents the Latino performing arts to a diverse audience in the Washington metropolitan region. Since 1975, GALA has presented a bilingual season of classical and contemporary plays, music, dance, poetry, spoken word and performances for youth by Hispanic artists from Spain, Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States. GALA also commissions plays and translations of works by Latino playwrights, and partners with Pregones Theater, NY; AMLA and Taller Puertorriqueno, Philadelphia; I.B.A., Boston; and in La Ruta, a Latino presenting and touring collaboration in the Northeast.
GALA presents its performing arts program in its new theater and at various venues in partnership with other arts organizations, including the Washington Performing Arts Society, Dance Place, Cultural Institute of Mexico and Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University. Artist presentations are selected based on quality of work and conformance with GALA’s mission to promote and present the Latino arts. Artists should submit project proposals and work samples at least one year prior to the commencement of the annual season in September of each year.
