GOLDEN MASK GALA
Teatro Máscara Mágica's Annual Fundraiser 2021
Bienvenidos, my name is Luis Aragon.
I am President of Teatro Máscara Mágica. It is my pleasure to welcome you to TMM's Golden Mask Celebration! Where we'll fly you to the moon, and dance among the Stars.
We're here to entertain you and to thank you for the 35 years you've supported TMM and to ask you to continue your support by giving what you can.
Your donations make it possible for us to raise the curtain on plays and musicals that inspire and honor San Diego's rich cultural heritage. Teatro tells our story. It reminds us, young and old of our culture. Our traditions like La Pastorela. That's why TMM is so important.
For too long our stories were not told, our traditions not celebrated, until a Trio of Visionary professors of theater: William Virchis, Dr. Jorge Huerta and African American Professor Floyd Gaffney recognized the need for a Common Ground Theater Company, and created TMM.
Since then, TMM has produced Multicultural theater, including works by the Asian Story Theater company and the Black Ensemble Theater Company. This evening, you'll learn about TMM'S proud past, innovative present and its exciting future.
We sincerely hope our presentation inspires you, and shows you that a community is not complete, its voice not heard, and its soul not fully expressed without theater.
Enjoy the show.
