U.Va. Spanish Theater Group To Present Two One-Act Plays

February 15, 2001-- The University of Virginia’s Spanish Theater Group, a veteran amateur ensemble known for its popular productions of stage dramas in Spanish, will present its annual Spring performances March 2-4 at Charlottesville High School’s Black Box Theater.

This year’s productions will be two thought-provoking one-act comedies by South American writers: "Una Mariposa Blanca" (A White Butterfly) by Argentine playwright Gabriela Roepke, and "El Delantal Blanco" (The White Apron) by Sergio Vodanovic of Chile. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for students and $7 for the general public.

Ticket reservations are recommended and may be made at U.Va.’s Spanish Department office at 112 Wilson Hall or by calling (804) 924-7155.

With participating U.Va. faculty members and students from throughout the Spanish-speaking world, the theater group performs plays from different Spanish-speaking countries each year and usually chooses plays with enough characters to give many members a role.

Spanish Department faculty incorporate the plays into their curriculum for upper-level classes. Spanish classes in high schools and colleges throughout Virginia often attend the performances. Again this year the group will go on tour to other colleges in the region after the performances in Charlottesville.

U.Va.'s Drama Department provides technical support to the production.
