Teatro Tercera Llamada
Teatro Tercera Llamada was awarded the Kentucky Theatre Association Karen Willis Award in 2018 for artistic excellence and commitment to changing Kentucky through theatre.
Teatro Tercera Llamada (TTLL) is a bilingual (English and Spanish) theatre company based in Louisville. Established in June 2013, TTLL produces mainstage productions that speak of Latinx experiences written by members of the company and prominent playwrights of the 20th and 21st centuries. Its mainstage productions include “Bashir Lazhar” by Evelyne de la Cheneliere and translated by Boris Schoemann, “Emigrados” by Slawomir Mrozek, “Pa’Gringolandi” (adapted) by Francisco Juárez, “Las mujeres tienen curvas” by Josefina López, “Rosa de dos aromas” by Emilio Carballido, “Algo de un tal Shakespeare” by Adrian Vásquez, “Silueta” by Diana Burbano, “Monstruos en el closet, ogros bajo la cama” by Gustavo Ott and “Guiando a Molly” by Haydee Canovas. Teatro Tercera Llamada presents free bilingual children’s plays that tour Louisville’s libraries during the summer and features plays from the company’s cofounder Carlos-Manuel’s “Henny Penny” and “La Cucarachita Martina.”

TTLL was the first company to produce a Spanish language play at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts with “Real Women Have Curves” by Josefina López in January 2017. Support from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, Fund for the Arts and Imagine Louisville 2020 as well as loyal audience members made this possible.

Teatro Tercera Llamada was awarded the Kentucky Theatre Association Karen Willis Award in 2018 for artistic excellence and commitment to changing Kentucky through theatre. In the fall of 2019, TTLL presented a new venture by promoting local playwrights with a festival of 10-minute-plays. The play festival will continue every fall once it is safe to resume theatrical productions.
