Last spring, the OWOW Center collaborated with Denver Water, Aurora Water, the City of Boulder, and the MSU Denver Theatre Department to establish a one-of-a-kind theatre troupe. Dr. Marilyn "Cookie" Hetzel, Chair of the Theatre Department, led a group of MSU Denver Theatre students through the process of creating a water conservation focused play. The troupe performed "Water Wise Circa 2015" to thousands of 6th graders at school assemblies and at 3 separate water festivals. The unique and creative performance recently earned the "Outstanding Environmental Education in the Innovative EE Program Category" award from the CAEE. Additionally, Cookie's innovation and passion was recognized in February for the Lifetime of Excellence in Teaching Award from the Kennedy Center and the American College Theatre Festival Region VII. OWOW is honored and grateful to work with Cookie and the MSU Denver Theatre Department.
