The Dream

I will follow my dreams, no matter how crazy they might be or where they might take me.  What’s the point of living if I’m not going to do what I’m passionate about?  I will listen to my heart and help others fulfill their dreams.  I will follow my heart; the rest will fall into place.

The Story

Bridge Playhouse, Inc. is a new, innovative company that understands and values diversity in a multicultural society. We represent a cultural bridge between the United States and the world, particularly with Latin America.  Alfredo Huereca, CEO and founder of Bridge Playhouse, Inc. embodies this communion.  Born and raised in our neighboring country of Mexico, Alfredo’s life has always revolved and evolved around the arts.  Since his early years, Alfredo used to spend long days drawing in the quiet of his home.  At school, he participated in every single art and folk spring festival, producing his high school’s first ever theatre production.

While studying a Bachelor’s of Science as a Mechanical and Industrial Engineer at the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, in Monterrey, Mexico, Alfredo continued his involvement with the arts, performing in numerous theatrical productions.  It is during this time that an event changed his life forever, something that has guided his footsteps and influenced his decisions up until this day.  At the age of twenty-four, Alfredo was diagnosed with testicular cancer.  During the months that followed with chemotherapy treatments, in and out of the hospital, he realized that if he would survive, if he were given a second change, he should follow his dreams and be true to himself and his passion.  He made a pledge:

I will follow my dreams, no matter how crazy they might be or where they might take me. What’s the point of living if I’m not going to do what I’m passionate about? I will listen to my heart and help others fulfill their dreams. I will follow my heart; the rest will fall into place.

After finishing his bachelor’s degree, Alfredo listened to his heart and obtained an MFA in Theater from the University of Texas at Austin and embarked on a journey that has taken him to playhouses across Mexico and the United States.  As a photographer, Alfredo has exhibited his work in The United States and has participated in the production of art exhibits, bringing the work of international painters to galleries in SoHo and midtown Manhattan.

True to his pledge and dreams, Alfredo has also worked with at-risk middle and high school students in New York and New Jersey.  As school principal, Alfredo has been able to touch many young people’s lives, inculcating the arts in their hearts and minds, always advocating for acceptance, diversity and equality.  His biggest dream became a reality in 2008, when he founded Bridge Playhouse, Inc. with the goal of producing high quality theater and film, creating a cultural bridge through the arts.
