Norma Ramirez

se mudó a Portland el año pasado de un pueblo pequeño en Montana y se prometió que tomaría ventaja de todas las oportunidades que una ciudad metropolitana pueda ofrecer. Se enroló como voluntaria guía/docente en el Portland Center Stage, tomó una clase de actuación para principiantes en el Portland Community College, y audicionó para Rosalba y los Llaveros — ¡sin ninguna preparación y sin ninguna cita! “Esta es mi primera obra y nunca habría imaginado obtener el papel de Dolores ‘Lola’ Llavero para mi debut como actriz” dice Norma. “Realmente creo que fue una llamada del destino.” Durante el día Norma trabaja como Bilingual Advocate para el Domestic Violence Resource Center en el Condado de Washington.

Norma Ramirez moved to Portland last year from a very small town in Montana and vowed to herself that she would take advantage of all the opportunities that a metropolitan city had to offer. She signed up as a volunteer usher/docent at Portland Center Stage, took a beginning acting class at Portland community College, and auditioned for Rosalba y Los Llaveros — completely unprepared and without an appointment! “This is my first play and I would never have imagined landing the role of Dolores ‘Lola’ Llaveros for my acting debut,” she says. “I certainly think it was destiny calling.” By day, Norma works as a Bilingual Advocate for the Domestic Violence Resource Center in Washington County.
