  • By Renee Moody
    Mora High School

    The Memorias De Mora Theater Project took wings on Saturday as the production of “Roots and Wings: A Call for Stories” was performed at the Joseph M. Montoya Gym. Under the direction of David Olson of Theaterwork Santa Fe, Mora High School students acted out an ensemble piece based on interviews collected by students at the high school.

    Not only were the stories the basis of the play, but will be the building blocks for a more extended piece slated to reach the stage in late June.

  • Oh, my ... the memories come flooding back when I see the little children pressing their noses on to the incredibly fancy Christmas windows at the big stores in Chicago and New York, among many places. Sweet brother Bill and I had that very special treat for many years when we were little.
