According to Dina Ibarra, Warden’s assistant director of enrollment counseling, each student who was interested in performing submitted answers to questions about their life experiences, which Fraire turned into a script. This fully staged production is a semi-autobiographical account of each student’s journey through issues that they either overcame or learned from.
Mary Trotter, the director of Las Memorias, said that the transition between working with college students to working with high school students was seamless.
“All the students are extremely committed to the project so they are a joy to work with,” Trotter said.
Trotter said audience members can expect to “hear about honest journeys of living.”
