Book-It Repertory Theatre of Seattle will perform Ada’s Violin — the true story about the Recycled Orchestra from Paraguay — at several libraries in North Central Washington this month.

The free performance is based on the children’s book by Susan Hood, which tells the story of Ada Ríos growing up in a slum outside of Asunción, Paraguay. She dreamed of playing the violin, but it was not an option for her poor family until a music teacher named Favio Chávez arrived. 

With instruments built entirely from recycled garbage, the now-world-famous Recycled Orchestra plays venues around the world spreading their message of hope and innovation.

Book-It Repertory Theatre will bring their story to life in Spanish and English at the following libraries:

Ephrata Public Library, 4:30 p.m.
