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.

Abner Caraballo and Teodorina Bello nabbed roles in the NYU thesis film Las Mañanitas. Also starring Paula Román, Sadie Clark, Ana Román, Inés Milans and Tommy McInnis, the film is written and directed by Gabriella Moses. Caraballo and Bello, shown at right, from left to right, found out about the film through a casting notice sent out to HOLA members. For more information on the film, click here.
