Three members of the College of Arts + Architecture family recently participated in the development of a new play at Children's Theatre of Charlotte. Theatre student Ginger Duchi, theatre professor Kaja Dunn, and dance alumnus Alex Aguilar joined playwright L.M. Feldman and director David Winitsky for a week-long professional workshopping of Feldman's play, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba, June 10-15. The play, part of Children's Theatre's "Kindness Project," will be produced in the 2020-21 season.
