HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Pregones Theater will present The Ides of March. The 2010 Asunción Playwrights Project winning play is written by Leo Cabranes-Grant and will have a workshop production in June at Pregones' eponymous theater, located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. The production will be directed by Jorge B. Merced and star Jack Landrón, Carlos Alberto Valencia, Elise Hernández, Yvette Quintero and Stefano Fossa in the cast. [Landrón, Quintero and Fossa, shown from left to right, above, won their roles either through an HOLA referral or after reading the casting notice in the HOLA daily e-mail announcements for its members.]

Yanelba Ferreira will add runway model to her resume. She is scheduled to do the fashion show entitled Fashion House Of Hopes: A Red Heels/Red Bow Tie Affair. Hosted by TV personality Stephanie Carrera and fashion stylist Shi-Nuh Holt, the show will benefit Casa Esperanza para Mujeres y Niños, Inc. Presented by Donny Ponce and directed by Jahdi Duarte, the event will take place Saturday, June 4, 2011 at the 1 Front Street Restaurant and Lounge located in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. Casa Esperanza para Mujeres y Niños, Inc., is a non-profit organization empowering women to become change agents in their communities by providing them with the tools needed to render support, outreach, spiritual development and preventive services to other women infected or at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.

Elle de Amor has just completed directing portions of the plays Broken Bones, Rabbit Hole, Dolores and Hello Out There as part of the Actors Studio 2011 repertory season. The presentations took place in April and May at Dance New Amsterdam in Manhattan's Civic Center area.
