“The Last, The Very Last . . . Butterfly” is a Holocaust remembrance piece designed for audiences age 9 to adult. Adapted for the stage and movingly underscored with music, sound and visual media, ” . . . Butterfly” is a collection of poems, narrative and drawings created by children who passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp between 1942 and 1944. The broad range of style and treatment of subject matter in both the poems and drawings illustrates the feelings, hopes and dreams of children growing up in a place with “little food, clothing or comfort, enclosed by barbed wire and Nazi soldiers standing guard.” While the presentation tells just a few of many stories of the Holocaust, it is an ideal introduction to or culmination of, Holocaust study, character development and prejudice reduction.
A musical that captivates the spirit, action, and causes of the United States founders as they formulated the Constitution. Presented in story form, brimming with song, dance, drama, and humor, “A More Perfect Union” personalizes the workings of history by following four representative characters who bring us to the center of many key episodes.
The story of begins in Boston, 1773 and ends at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, 1787. The musical covers the critical and tempestuous time in our nation’s history in which revolution, war, and a failed attempt at self-governing finally led to the writing of the U.S. Constitution and the birth of our country as we know it today.
