Celebrate Mother’s Day with Repertorio Español!

Hannia Gattorno laying of platform

Without a doubt moms wear many hats! Sometimes they are stern like Bernarda Alba in La casa de Bernarda Alba and other times they are sweet and tender like Santiago Nasar’s mother in Cronica de una muerte anunciada. Regardless of what version of mom we have on a given day, we all love those super hero ladies, which is why we couldn’t let Mother’s Day go unnoticed at Repertorio Español. Francisco Gattorno will be back to brighten up the weekend in Doña Flor y sus dos maridos” and in case you haven’t read already, moms will receive a FREE Repertorio Español tote bag on Sunday, May 8th!

With the Holidays coming up, so begins the season of giving! There are thousands of reasons why you should donate to Repertorio Español, but here are ten solid reasons why doing so is not just giving to Repertorio, but giving back to the entire Latino community

1. DIGNIDAD.

Repertorio introduces over 18,000 students a year to Latino Theater through ¡DIGNIDAD!, an educational initiative with interactive outreach programs. In other words, we take fieldtrips to a whole different level, and the kids love it.

2. THE VAN LIER DIRECTING FELLOWSHIP.

Every year, young directors are invited to try their hand and develop their skills on Repertorio’s stage, creating opportunities for bright, young directors to direct in Spanish and aiding in the creation of a fresh, new, talented blood in the world of directors. Victoria Collado, Diego Chiri and Estefania Fadul are this year’s candidates! 

 

3. METLIFE ‘NUESTRAS VOCES’ NATIONAL PLAYWRITING COMPETITION.

Hand in hand with The MetLife Foundation, Repertorio extends young, budding playwrights the opportunity to have their original plays produced on stage – cultivating a new generation of Latino voices in theater. Barceló con hielo and Su nombre será su sombra para siempre are just two in a major canon of plays by Latino playwrights produced by Repertorio.

 

4. ACTORS.

Repertorio Español employs countless actors from across the world in its company, creating an opportunity for today’s and tomorrow’s big stars – both international and domestic – to come together and create some awesome theater.

Repertorio Español is a repertory theater, which means that we present a broad spectrum of productions – from comedies, to dramas, to musical reviews, to standup comedy, to dance. Whatever your cultural side is craving, we can satisfy it.   

 

9. YOUR DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Aside from being a theater and a company, Repertorio Español is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization which means your donation is eligible for a tax deduction… making your donation the gift that gives back to the community and back to you! 

 

10. WE’RE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT WE SHARE ONE MISSION!

Only in New York can artists from across Latin America, the United States and Spain come together and share the same mission – to bring the Latino community the best, high quality theater that reflects our heritage and culture. A donation to Repertorio is not just a donation to a theater, but to a community of artists dedicated to preserving, advancing and cultivating the cultural greatness of the Latino people.
