A benchmark for amateur theater in Catalonia, with the participation of groups from all over the region. The competition has been organized by Olesa’s Catalan Hiking Club (UEC) since 1984 and is one of the highlights of Olesa’s fall calendar. Every Sunday evening, from late September to late November, amateur plays of the highest quality are performed in the club’s local center.
The club’s theater group also presents a play of its own, not included in the competition. The winners are announced at an awards dinner in mid-December in a ceremony that is both formal and congenial.
From September to November
Olesa de Montserrat is a municipality rich in culture and tradition, located in the foothills of the mountain of Montserrat. Olesa de Montserrat is located in the north of the comarca (county) of Baix Llobregat, in the subcomarca of Montserratí, halfway between Barcelona and the Montserrat Monastery. The natural area of the municipality, with its beautiful and magnificent scenery, is bounded by the Llobregat river and the mountain chains of Sant Salvador de les Espases and Puigventós. Olesa’s roots are markedly agricultural; it is noted in particular for its cultivation of olives of the palomar or Olesan variety, native to the region, from which the famous Olesan oil is extracted.
