Passaic Valley High School Presents La Gringa

Passaic Valley High School Theatre presents La Gringa October 28, 29, 30 at 7pm in the Schneider Auditorium at 100 East Main Street in Little Falls. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at PVSTheater.com or at the door 45 minutes before showtime.

 La Gringa is about a young woman’s search for her identity. Mari­a Elena Garcia goes to visit her family in Puerto Rico during the Christmas holidays and arrives with plans to connect with her homeland. Although this is her first trip to Puerto Rico, she has had an intense love for the island, and even majored in Puerto Rican Studies in college. Once Maria is in Puerto Rico, she realizes that Puerto Rico does not welcome her with open arms. The majority of the Puerto Ricans on the island consider her an American – a gringa – and Mari­a considers this a betrayal. If she’s a Puerto Rican in the United States and an American in Puerto Rico, Maria concludes that she is nobody everywhere. Her uncle, Manolo, spiritually teaches her that identity isn’t based on superficial and external definitions, but rather is an essence that she has had all along in her heart.

La Gringa, written by Carmen Rivera, just celebrated 25 years since its opening and is known for being the longest running off-Broadway Spanish-language production in New York City.

The Passaic Valley High School performance is starring Mallory Cestone, Gabriella Cielo, Julian Esquivel, Connor Meletta, Christopher Perez, and Jeneily Ruano.

It's directed by Pia Vanderstreet and the stage manager is Emma Giron.
