Scarlatti Sonata in A (L.483) and Sor Minuet in C (Opus 25) are two pieces I forgot to mention that fit the bill.

Villa-Lobos Prelude #3 is not too hard and quite long. And very beautiful.

Un Dia de Noviembre. Many repeats. People love it.
+1 for this - Apart from one tricky stretch, it's quite straightforward.

Diabelli sonata in C. Moderate difficulty compared to other similar works, good fun. Also whichever of Carulli's works you can find. For filling time also consider any arrangements of popular pieces/songs you have, they can be great crowdpleasers.

I've been listening to some of Carulli's larger works and I think they're really quite good. Much better than his student pieces. Maybe I'll go in that direction, especially if i can figure out which opus was being referred to upthead.

Ok in terms of easy and longish, have a look at Carulli's opus 7. http://carkiv.musikverk.se/www/boije/Boije_0626.pdf

I've been steering her in the direction of Carulli here at home. With very few exceptions I hate the man's etudes, but as a composer of larger works I think him completely undervalued and underestimated. Many of them are quite beautiful, and most only of moderate difficulty. If she jumps on it hard i think she could nail down Op. 7 before the November show.

Thanks for all the ideas and responses! I'm going to do Carulli 7.
