HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting gigs.

Mónica Yudovich, shown at right, auditioned for and was cast in an ABC Diversity Showcase in Los Angeles, due to an HOLA casting announcement she received via e-mail.

Gladys K. Nilsen booked a commercial for Banana Nut Cheerios, which can be seen here (she appears at the end of the commercial).

Jean-Marc Berne recorded a voiceover for an online video game called "The Burger Game." To hear his work as Raoul the Dog Boy, click here.

Blanca Vásquez e-mailed us to let us know that she has booked several voiceovers (including work for MTV, New York State Lottery and Kohl's). On stage, she toured Atlanta, Georgia with the Society of the Educational Arts (SEA) for the National Puppetry Festival with the show La muela de rey Farfán/The Toothache of King Farfán (directed by Manuel Morán).

Romina Sacre and David Arca performed in the Carlos Lacámara play Nowhere on the Border. Produced by Stageworks Hudson and directed by Laura Margolis, the play took place in Hudson, New York. Both actors found out about the audition through an HOLA casting notice. Reviews were excellent for the production. Critics wrote that "Romina Sacre as Pilar borders on brilliant" (Michael Eck, Times Union), "David Arca does clean and capable work" (Charles Kondek, Hudson-Catskill newspapers), and "This is must-see theater at its very finest" (Carol King, Daily Gazette).
