Texas State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is hosting the 17th annual Black and Latino Playwrights Celebration (BLPC) from Sept. 2-8. 

The mission of the BLPC is to celebrate the voices of Black and Latino playwrights by work-shopping new plays in collaboration with professional directors, actors and university students.

Join the celebration and tribute to the 2019 distinguished guest group, Culture Clash. A Q&A session will also take place with the troupe’s members Hebert Siguenza and Ric Salinas, as well as scenes from their plays performed by Texas State students.

Culture Clash is a performance troupe that currently comprises writer-comedians Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza. Their works range from comedy sketches to full-length plays and screenplays, all of which feature political and social satire. 

The tribute to Culture Clash will take place on Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Recital hall. The event is open to the public and the performance is free for all who wish to attend. 

The BLPC will also host a divisive performance workshop with Culture Clash members Herbert Siguenza and Ric Salinas. The workshop will take place Sept. 7 from 2-5 p.m. in room 209 of the Theatre Center. The event is free, but requires a RSVP by calling (512) 245-6500.

For more information, please contact the Department of Theatre and Dance at (512) 245-2147.
