Nov 9, 2018

Debora Wondercheck is out to change the world - adding "the arts" back into the lives (and schools) of local kids. Her non-profit organization, The Arts & Learning Conservatory, is busily restoring confidence by honing creativity and character. With the work-ethic of a classically-trained cellist - and the CEO skills of a smart, strategic leader - Wondercheck's bringing professional-level theater and music here to Costa Mesa.

This weekend, you can check out the fruits of all that creative labor! The Arts & Learning Conservatory presents Addams Family: The Musical at Segerstrom High School Theater.

On this episode we talk to Wondercheck about her background, the Conservatory, future plans... and The Addams Family, of course!
