Latino Stories


Magical Rain












are ancient gifts...
songs from the heart
of the world.
They give
voice and visibility
to memory and dream,
breath and bone.
Story's characters
are always startling,
always familiar
for they are our relatives
our enemies,

"Their presentations are both educational and entertaining, magical but realistic...and bring to life messages and concepts that linger long after the curtain closes."
- Gloria Vaquera, Assistant Director,
Office of Admissions, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI

"I would work with Irene and Dan again in a heartbeat. They challenge my mind and expressiveness. They know how to work with people of all ages, bringing the meaning of life alive in a magical and exciting way. I strongly recommend them to anyone interested in exploring the richness of life through storytelling and theater." - Jill Waskowski, Teacher, Portage Central High School, Portage, MI

"Dr. Vasquez and Dan Runyan provide a service that goes beyond performance. They give the community a sense of their passion to educate through storytelling, dance, drama and music. Therefore, I highly recommend Magical Rain Theaterworks to help make your dream to make a difference come true." - Andrew Sawyer, Chair, Calling All Colors Committee, St. Joseph, MI
