GALA has staged over 220 productions, ranging from classical Spanish theater to contemporary Latin American plays, original musicals, and works by local Latino youth; toured elementary schools with bilingual children's programs; and participated in national and international theater festivals.
We partner regularly with other local arts groups, including the In Series, Young Playwrights' Theater, and Washington Performing Arts Society, with whom it co-presents the annual ArteAmericA series. Over the years, ArteAmericA has introduced Washington D.C. audiences to over 100 established and cutting-edge performing artists, including Tito Puente, Guillermo Gómez Peña, Lila Downs, and Gilberto Gil, and provided hundreds of local school children the opportunity to participate in workshops with these talents.
2005 was a banner year for GALA as it moved into its long-awaited home at the Tivoli and became a permanent national Hispanic theater. 2016 marks GALA’s 40th year in existence as it celebrates the commitment to the community in order to continue its contribution to the cultural growth in Washington, DC.
