Co-fundador de El Piquete Show, un programa de variedades diseñado para la web el cual le dio la oportunidad de ser presentador y productor.

Junior, Franklin High School. The reason I joined Pluma Nueva program was because I heard that Pluma Nueva offered the opportunity to act and at the same time do writing workshops. I thought that this would be a fun experience to act my own story while also meeting new people and making more friends. My play talks about my parents and my experience in the U.S. I talk about how a lot of Latinos in this country are undocumented and want to succeed, but they feel they can’t because they are not legal. Even though they face this problem they don’t give up and want to show everyone that they can do it. Even though they have that barrier in front of them.

Peter Montgomery

is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Drama and the Reed College MAT program. He has been a director, actor, business manager, and stage technician in theater and has taught Drama in Portland area high schools. Since 1971 Peter's specialization in theater has been the Greek drama, particularly to learn how the plays might have been presented in Classic times and how they might be successfully communicated to modern American audiences. Peter researches ancient Greek culture, translates plays, and performs the theatrical results of his work in Northwest schools and communities. The script for this production of Oedipus is his translation of Sophocles. In addition, in this production he has the joyous opportunity to play the Chorus Leader, an opportunity that allows him to hear, clearly and more often, what is good about his script and, alas, what needs "more work."
