Acto Latino Theater Group, along with Los Amigos Spanish Club and the Transnational Commons Collective Club, are gearing up for Dia Latino on June 2 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the library lawn.
Dia Latino is set to be an afternoon full of culture, music, games, giveaways, along with folkloric dance numbers, face painting, music, natural juices, snacks and raffles.
Acto Latino Theater Group, who have performed plays such as Los Vendidos & La Quinta Temporada, is an on campus group on the rise.
Founded for the purpose of fostering interest in Hispanic/Latino language, culture, and literature through the presentation of Spanish-language plays, it is an exciting option for students interested in joining a new club.
Interest in Hispanic/Latino culture, literature, language and/or Spanish theater is the only requirement for joining.
“My favorite aspect is the diversity of all the students that participate in the club. They come from all backgrounds and majors. They do not need to have any acting or theater experience. Everyone is welcome!” said Dr. Bibiana Diaz, assistant professor for the Department of World Languages and Literatures and Acto Latino President.
“They can share their experiences, participate in theater workshops and acting activities that promotes self esteem, aid with the interpersonal and facilitate public speaking skills. Theater changes lives!” concluded Diaz.
The Acto Latino Theatre Group meets Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. UH-242.
If interested please contact Dr. Bibiana Diaz at [email protected].
