Return to Sender: Performance and Workshop
October 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:45 pm$11 – $14
Nashville Children’s Theatre invites Girl Scouts to a special performance of their show Return to Sender, followed by a 45 minute-1 hour workshop. Eleven-year-old Tyler Paquette is the son of generations of farmers. Eleven-year-old Mari Cruz is the Mexican born daughter of undocumented migrant workers. When Mari’s family is hired to help save Tyler’s family’s farm from foreclosure, both young people are forced to confront the complexities of immigration and citizenship. Marisela Treviño Orta’s adaptation of Julia Alvarez’s award-winning novel is a powerful reminder of how young people can reach hands across cultural differences and find understanding.
Tickets for this performance and workshop go on sale on September 20, 2019. Please use the discount code GSReturn2019. You can purchase tickets for both the performance and workshop or just the performance. This program is suitable for Girl Scouts in third through eighth grade.
