Wanda and Winky Go To California at New Center Park in Detroit
New Center Park
2998 West Grand Boulevard
Detroit, MI 48202
Adapted from the children's book, "Wanda and Winky" by Commerce Township author Linda McLean, this free 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 a spectacular, life-sized elephant puppet to narrate the poetic journey of these Asian elephants, fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of this endangered and beautiful animal. Presented by Carrie Morris Arts Production.
