A Cabaret for Camoapa
CREAMERY DISTRICT – A Cabaret for Camoapa is an Arcata Sister City Project organized and produced by North Coast Preparatory Arts Academy student Misha Feral to raise scholarship money for disadvantaged youth in Arcata’s sister city, Camoapa, Nicaragua.
After hosting a student from Camoapa in the fall semester, Misha and her family stayed in Nicaragua for three weeks and worked with scholarship students there. Many of the students they met were living on $1 a day, but were still endlessly passionate about their education. Their school spaces were small and not ideal, but these conditions did not stop them from learning.
All proceeds will go directly towards helping Camoapa scholarship students pursue their education. It only takes $120 to send a student to school for a year; this expense includes their books, meals and supplies. There will be donation jars at the event and anything that you can give will go to the students of our sister city.
The Cabaret will feature performances by the Lyndsey Battle band, local performing arts students and many of our community talents with song and dance. This promises to be good fun for all ages to come out, enjoy a great variety show and help underprivileged students pay for their education. By working together, we can do more.
The Cabaret is Friday, March 4 starting at at 8 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse, 1251 Ninth St. Tickets are $10/$7 for students and are available at Wildberries Marketplace and at the door. facebook.com/A-Cabaret-For-Camoapa-234112776923546/
