The National Center for Latino Performing Arts in the heart of Washington D.C. is dedicated to promoting and sharing Latino arts and culture with the world. GALA (Grupo de Artistas Latinoamericanos), having staged over 165 productions, ranging from classical Spanish theatre to contemporary Latin American plays, proves to be both influential and monumental, in its efforts to educate and entertain.

The world has been set ablaze, and overwhelmingly receptive to “42,” the biographical film about the life of baseball player Jackie Robinson, a game changer for African-Americans in baseball. In good timing, GALA HISPANIC THEATRE is now performing DC-7 The Roberto Clemente Story. This show explores the journey of Roberto Clemente and his rise from the barrios of Puerto Rico to successful seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

We are elated to see our stories highly received and shared in media outlets big and small. Better yet, GALA offers a multitude of Theatre and Theatre Education. The theatre extends several opportunities; including, an educational outreach for students, an afternoon performance workshop, and volunteer programs. We are definitely looking forward to seeing all that they have to offer!
