Jeffers Theatre, Arts & Humanities Building (ARHU) on the Edinburg Campus. 

Open dress rehearsal will be 7:30 p.m. April 19. 

Rehearsals are underway for this comedy, which takes us to Puerto Rico, where Maria, a recent college-graduate from NYC, is visiting the “homeland” she has never seen, only to find herself caught between two very different cultures.

Maria’s role is played by Tiffany Espericueta, a junior at UTRGV. La Gringa is directed by Joel Garza.

Reserve seating is $12 and general admission is $8. Tickets for non-UTRGV students, faculty and staff are $3 with their school ID.
