Meet our Understudy - Estrella Saldana!

Estrella Saldana plays Deseparecida on September 7th and 8th in Shrewd Productions' NNPN rolling world premiere of Stephanie Alison Walker's THE MADRES.

A message from Estrella

As a theatre maker, I have always viewed storytelling as a responsibility to my community. I join this cast, though temporarily, with the intention of honoring the Madres who have been fighting for a lifetime to be heard and seen. I am honored to be joining this dedicated team in honoring this story.
