The Miranda Family ‘Voces Latinx’ National Playwriting Competition This new playwriting initiative continues the ideals of our original competition, to develop and promote Latinx plays and playwrights. By doing so we are championing a distinctively American narrative that is slowly gaining traction with “mainstream” theatres across the country but still lagging woefully behind.

Edward And Sally Van Lier Fellowship For Hispanic / Latinx Directors

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Van Lier Young Director’s Fellowship is currently not being offered in 2020.  Please stay tuned for other opportunities for Latinx Directors as we hope to have new programming for emerging directors soon. This fellowship is designed to give emerging Hispanic / Latinx directors an opportunity to develop their craft by mounting two professional theater productions at Repertorio Español. This Fellowship is sponsored by The New York Community Trust.
