Luis Alfaro, 2024 Wilson Gala Honoree

The Wilson Mules Alumni Association is proud to name playwright Luis Alfaro of the Woodrow Wilson High School Class of 1979 as this year's GALA Honoree.

Luis' passion and professional contributions to the arts spans more than four decades. Luis spent a decade as a poet, another decade as a performance artist, and the last two decades working in the professional theatre in America, including having been produced off-Broadway three times.

In high school, Luis performed in nearly every play, and anchored Wilson's Drama Festival Competitions city-wide.

Since leaving high school, Luis has written over twenty plays, and has a book of his Greek classic adaptations, 'The Greek Trilogy of Luis Alfaro' which won the major London/Greece Hellenic prize in 2022.

Luis is a tenured professor at USC and director of the MFA in Dramatic Writing program. He previously taught at Cal-Arts and UCLA Extension Writers Program.

What makes Luis' teaching career incredible is that he never went to college! Luis' remarkable lifelong body of work led to his receiving the MacArthur Genius Grant, and the rest is history.

In honoring Luis, we are confident that he will be an inspiration to current Wilson High School students, and put a big beautiful spotlight on both Wilson's present theatre arts programs, and the new Visual and Performing Arts facility that is now under construction.

Bravo Luis Alfaro, you are a great source of pride for past, present and future Wilson Mules.

Proceeds from our Gala will benefit current and future Wilson visual and performing arts students, as well as students in economic need pursuing a multitude of creative, academic and extracurricular goals. The Wilson Mules Alumni Association is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, tax ID #47-5551630.
