New Center Park
2998 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, Michigan 48202
Presented by: Carrie Morris Arts Production (CMAP).

Adapted from the children's book Wanda and Winky by Commerce Township author Linda McLean, this performance tells the story of the Detroit Zoo's last two elephants who made headlines in 2005 when they were retired to an animal sanctuary in California, making the Zoo the nation's first major animal facility to retire an animal solely on ethical grounds. Wanda and Winky Go To California will use spectacular, life-sized elephant puppets to narrate the poetic journey of these Asian elephants, fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of this endangered and beautiful animal.

Doors at 1PM. Performance at 2PM. Duration: 1h.

FREE Performance.
