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.

Marcelino Feliciano, shown at left, booked a role in the play Jackson Heights, 3AM. Conceived and directed by Ari Laura Kreith, the series of plays were produced by Theatre 167 and written by Jenny Lyn Bader; J. Stephen Brantley; Ed Cardona, Jr.; Les Hunter; Tom Miller; Melisa Tien; and Joy Tomasko. Scheduled for a January and February run, it is scheduled to take place at Public School 69 at the Jackson Heights neighborhood of Queens and then in Queens Theater in the Flushing Meadows Park of Queens. The cast also features Roberto Araujo, Varín Ayala, Farah Bala, Cynthia Bastidas, Rajesh Bose, J. Stephen Brantley, Arlene Chico-Lugo, Ross DeGraw, Nick Fehlinger, Kevin Hoffman, John P. Keller, Alex Kip, Ephraim López, Neal Mayer, Nina Mehta, Sergey Nagorny, Flor De Liz Pérez, Indika Senanayake, Josie Whittlesey and Shivantha Wijesinha. For more information, click here. (Mr. Feliciano booked the gig after the casting director saw his headshot on the HOLA online talent directory.)

Sarah Elizondo and Gloribell Mercado, shown at right, from left to right, booked roles in a Del Exilio music video after the director saw their headshots on the HOLA online talent directory.

Yanelba Ferreira was cast as the lead for the short film For Granted (written by Gabe Walkinshaw and scheduled to be directed by Joe Williams; produced by Amago Productions). It is slated to shoot the first weekend of January.

Ismael Cruz Córdova can be seen in the recurring role of Jimmy Patrick on "The Good Wife" (CBS).

Mel Nieves announced that his play Undertow is an official selection of the 2012 Downtown Urban Theater Festival (DUTF), to be presented at Here Theater in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood in March 2012. The play will be directed by Walter J. Hoffman and star Karen Sours and Kevin Prowse. For more information, click here.
