WINGS Performing Arts Center and Cafe to the Stars
The WINGS program at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center nurtures talent, spirit and leadership in youth through performing arts and community service at Mississippi’s only children’s museum. Over 500 young people ages 4 and up take part in award winning theatre productions each year. Outreach through the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Gulf Coast brings the joy and discipline of performing to children of all backgrounds. Many participants earn scholarships to prestigious university programs. A beneficiary since 2003, the WINGS Performing Arts Center and Café to the Stars opened in 2009.
