JOSEFINA LOPEZ, the award-winning playwright and screenwriter and the Founding Artistic Director of Real Women Have Curves Studio and Casa 0101 Theater, both based in Boyle Heights, CA, announced the founding of a new theatre company, TEATRO PARA TODOS (Theatre For All), which she will helm.
Published on LatinoLA: September 9, 2014
Josefina L??pez, creator of play and co-screenwriter of the Sundance Film Festival award-winning film, Real Women Have Curves, said, "Now as my first theatre company, Casa 0101 Theatre prepares for its 15th Anniversary Season in Boyle Heights, I feel the time is right to expand my artistic vision by announcing the birth of a new theatre company on the Eastside, TEATRO PARA TODOS (Theatre For All), whose mission will be to produce and present theatrical fare in the Spanish language, serving not only our local community, but all Angelinos.
"To get things started, prior to producing actual productions, I must first build a talent pool for Teatro Para Todos. As a means to that end, I have hired a Spanish theatre instructor and noted radio and television voiceover artist, Raul Romero, who will lead a 14-week Theatre Acting Workshop in Spanish from September 20 ďă˘ December 20, 2014 at my studio in Boyle Heights."
Raul Romero said, "My goal is to develop professional caliber theatre actors in Spanish. To do that I teach students that acting should be an intense discipline that is a lot of fun, very similar to a children's game, because when children play they have fun and take what they are doing seriously. Secondly, I instruct the actors to develop a strong ability to trust in themselves so that they are able to interpret character's levels, from the horrifying criminals to the most trusted civilians."
The Theatre Acting Workshop in Spanish will focus on gaining confidence in scene work, voice and body expression, the development of characters and text analysis. Students who are not completely fluent in Spanish are welcomed. The classes are structured for beginning to intermediate level adults 18 years of age and older.
Classes will be held on Saturdays from September 20 ďă˘ December 20, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. ďă˘ 12:00 p.m. (14 weeks) at Real Women Have Curves Studio, 2005 East First Street, Boyle Heights, CA 90033. The cost is $10 per session, which must be paid in advance. Scholarships for deserving students who can commit to all 14 sessions are available.

Raul Romero is originally from Mexico City. He graduated from the Autonomy National University of Mexico (UNAM) in International Studies. While he was working in his career, as a hobby, he attended various theatre-acting workshops given at UNAM. During this time Romero discovered his natural talent as an announcer for radio and television commercials. On radio he used his voice to bring to life several characters in a news program.
Eventually he became a member of a professional theatre group called Taller del Sotano (The Workshop in the Basement). The theatre group had such success in Mexico that they were invited to present two theatre plays at the International Theater Festival in Chicago in1994.
Romero was advised by his instructor, Aristides Vargas (author of one of the plays that was presented in Chicago) to follow his intuition to pursue are career in theatre and radio in Spanish in the United States, and specifically here, in Los Angeles, because of the large population of Spanish speakers that reside here.
In Los Angeles, Romero has written, acted and directed plays of his own, and those by other playwrights as well. He is an active member of SAG-AFTRA (the actors union) and has worked as voiceover talent in Spanish on hundreds of sitcoms and movies, including: LOST, starring the voice of Jack Shepard; DESPERATE HOUSEWIFES, starring the voice of Orson Hodge; THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL starring the voice of Ridge Forrester and CSI Miami.
