EL BARRIO RAÍCES SUMMER CAMP was a three week summer program that offered theater arts training to children ages 8 to 12. Participants had the opportunity to learn about several theatre disciplines, including acting, dance, make-up, ensemble work, and costume & set building. The program culminated with the presentation of the play La verdadera historia del guaraguao y el pitirre directed by Lynnette Salas.
This program was founded thanks to the initiative and support of La Marqueta Retoña and the Office of House Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
