@COWaterCongress day 1: @msudenver actors steal the show

Below is a video performance of “Water Wise” featuring actors from the Metropolitan State University Theater Department. It’s an education piece that they perform at children’s water festivals. We were treated to a live performance yesterday at the Colorado Water Congress’ Annual Convention. I was impressed by the students’ explanations about how writing and performing the play had changed their habits, and how they educate those around them now. They also mentioned that their message resonates with the children they perform for. Thanks to Denver Water for sending me the link.
