LCC to feature Nuevo Laredo ballet company in ‘Giselle’

Event Dates and Times

4/10/2016 - Starts: 3:00 PM
Guadalupe and Lilia Martinez Fine Arts Center theater at the LCC Fort McIntosh Campus
The world of classical ballet comes to life this weekend as Laredo Community College plays host to the production of Heinrich Heine’s iconic romantic ballet, Giselle, premiering this Sunday, April 10 at 3 p.m. in the Guadalupe and Lilia Martinez Fine Arts Center theater at the Fort McIntosh Campus.

Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

The performance will feature the talents of the Compania de Danza Nuevo Laredo, which is currently made up of 41 actors and dancers.
The two-act play is set against the backdrop of the middle ages.

After the young nobleman Albrecht falls in love with the young peasant girl, Giselle, trouble ensues as their romance blossoms amidst deception, disapproval, and betrayal, as told through the mesmerizing movements of dramatic ballet performances.

The one-of-a kind production is one you won’t want to miss, explains Art and Cultural Projects Director Danna Vazquez.

“Giselle excels from other classical ballet performances because of its moving story. The production has a ghastly feel to it and touches the very core of our humanity,” said Vazquez.

Dance company directors and professional dancers Adelaida Viesca and Gerardo Gil are set to portray the principal roles of Giselle and Albrecht, as they lead the dance troupe through the production.

“Audiences can expect a beautiful and captivating performance filled with exceptional artistic and technical work. It is a magical ballet,” reaffirmed Vazquez.

Teatro Chicano offers comedy by local playwright

Event Dates and Times

10/10/2014 - Starts: 8:00 PM
Laredo Little Theatre 4802 Thomas Avenue
Laredo Community College’s Teatro Chicano de Laredo and Laredo Little Theatre, Inc. are joining forces for the sixth consecutive year to present the play The Thirteenth Sacrament, written by local playwright Oscar O. Peña.

The play opens on Friday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. at the Laredo Little Theatre, located at 4802 Thomas Avenue.

The dark-comedy revolves around Pepe, a terminally ill patient who requests that his ex-wife kill him before he dies of natural causes. The play offers a light-hearted view of neurosis, guilt and redemption and offers a humanistic reinterpretation of the afterlife. The play is intended for mature audiences.

“This is not a play about assisted suicide; it’s a play about murder between consenting adults,” Peña said. “The Thirteenth Sacrament is very personal to me. It grew out of my experiences watching my father die quickly and my grandmother pass away slowly. I have attempted to take these experiences and filter the depth, the emotion, and the humor (believe it or not), and turn it into an entertaining play. I don’t know if it’s therapeutic, but I do know that this is the text that poured out of my innermost consciousness.”

Peña has been a member of the Teatro Chicano de Laredo for five years and has written, directed and acted in numerous previous productions, including Manila Folder (writer and actor), Terminal Velocity (writer and actor), and Bridges by Luis E. Flores (director and actor).

The father of four young sons, Peña is the president of the Board of the Laredo Little Theatre, Inc. and he is a local criminal defense trial attorney in private practice.

In a serendipitous display of life imitating art, Peña most recently appeared as the criminal defense lawyer Billy Flynn in Chicago (LITE) and as the frustrated stage director, Lloyd Dallas, in Noises Off (Laredo Little Theatre).

Knowing how difficult it is to act in and direct the same production, Peña resisted the temptation to appear in his own play, but he will be co-directing the play together with his wife, Doreen Puig–Peña.

Doreen also is no stranger to the stage, having appeared in Dangerous Liaisions (LLT), El Partido (Teatro Chicano de Laredo), Chicago (LITE), and Extremities (LCC Summer Stock).

“I am thrilled to be working with my wife on this project,” Peña said. “It makes us happy to spend time working on creative endeavors like this one. We love being together. She helped me write the play over the course of several months in 2013 and 2014.”
