The program’s goal is to support CCA’s ongoing mission of honoring the diversity in the Gorge by providing access to theater and arts programming for artists, performers and audiences from all cultural backgrounds, said a press release.
Through programs such as this, CCA provides opportunities for the community to feel welcome in the center and for the community to share in programming brought to locations within the community.
This program includes performances for school groups and families, both at CCA and in community schools.
Pegasus Puppet Theater of Portland will perform the Venezuelan story, “The Vain Little Mouse,” for school groups at CCA and Mosier School on Oct. 18 and for the public at an evening show at Mid Valley Elementary School on Oct. 19.
The Day of the Dead Celebration on Oct. 26 will feature the creation of an altar; decoration/craft making in the CCA Studio; traditional foods including tamales, bread and fruit; and a performance by Mariachi de Hood River from Hood River Middle School. This event benefits from collaboration with the Hood River Library.
