Children’s Theater of Madison’s production “Calabasas Street” is running now till Sunday March, 27th and is a story of unlikely friends, second chances and the transformative power of art. The theater reached out to Midwest Mujeres who helped them connect with a group of local third graders at Lincoln Elementary. The children were given workshops to help them learn about Latinx culture and the Spanish language while making 83 mini pinatas for the production.
Joining Friday Buzz host, Peter Haney, to talk about the production and the project to make the pinatas is Araceli Esparza, the founder of Midwest Mujeres, and Simona Simkins, the Associate Director of the production at the Children’s Theater.
