I Never Saw Another Butterfly PosterI Never Saw Another Butterfly

February 24-March 5, 2017

By Celese Raspant

More than 12,000 children passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp between the years 1942-1944 and only about a hundred were still alive when Terezin was liberated. Raja lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little reason for hope. This play is her story, showing the best and the worst of which the human heart is capable.

April 5-15, 2017

By Alan Alda
Directed by David Bunce

With backbreaking work in a ramshackle lab in Paris, Marie Curie and her husband Pierre achieve a revolutionary understanding of radiation and share a Nobel Prize in physics. After her beloved Pierre dies in an accident, Marie is plunged into depression, but physicist Paul Langevin gives her the strength to return to her work and she receives a second Nobel Prize, this time for chemistry.  A stirring look at the challenges and passions of a scientific pioneer.
