"As a result of my daughter's participation in the play "Les Misérables" -performed by the UP last year-, and seeing and touching the theater environment, I also wanted to live the experience," said Javier Casillas, an Engineering student from our Aguascalientes campus, when he enrolled in the first theater workshop for adults.

The senior theater workshop began in September 2022 under the direction of Professor Rafael Paniagua, promoted by the Department of Arts and Culture, with the objective of bringing theater to our Alumni and adults and to continue collaborating in the cultural dissemination and artistic development in the state of Aguascalientes.

The students were able to present the play on March 4 and 5 at the Antonio Leal y Romero Theater with 4 performances, and on March 10 and 11 at the Aguascalientes Museum with another 4 performances, reaching more than 800 spectators who, on more than one occasion, recognized their work with standing ovations.

"I can't believe it's the first time several of them have performed on stage, their work is very organic, excellent," commented one of the audience members.
