GALA Hispanic Theatre
GALA Hispanic Theatre is a professional Latino theater company that produces and presents for 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 U.S. It also commissions plays and translations of works by Latino playwrights.
GALA presents its performing arts program in its new theater and at various venues, 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 in advance of the September season opening.
